According to the specification this does appear to be the case[1]:

If transfer of control enters the scope of any automatic variables
(e.g. by jumping forward over a declaration statement), the program
is ill-formed (cannot be compiled), unless all variables whose scope
is entered have:

1) scalar types declared without initializers
2) class types with trivial default constructors and trivial destructors
   declared without initializers
3) cv-qualified versions of one of the above
4) arrays of one of the above

As the declaration of 'rb' earlier in the block is also initialised this
would violate the first rule above so the compiler aborts.

My solution in a previous message should then work as it simply moves
the logic of the goto to a block without any variable declarations.

What I am confused about is why my Xcode doesn't give me an error? Even
when I specifically tell it to compile in C++ mode, and especially as it
is an error condition and not simply a warning!
