The patch seems rather extensive, I have no way of testing it and I don't want to have to maintain it in the future. If it has been merged by opencascade upstream for 7.0 I might apply it, but if it is only a third party patch I will not. Can you check if it has been merged upstream?

It isn't a third part patch, salome and opencascade developers are strictly bind.
I confirm that patch ha already been merged in 7.0.0 version.

I've released opencascade 6.9.1-3 to [community-testing]. Please check if it works for you.

It's ok for me.

Since this breaks freecad (see  FS#50829 ) even though I rebuilt it, I'm pulling it back out. I'm afraid you'll have to wait for opencascade 7.0.0 or patch it yourself.

Turns out this patch isn't the cause of the problem. It is actually a change in gcc that optimizes away some checks. The patch will continue to be in the package for now until it really leads to problems. I'm also keeping this report open for a week or two so I don't have to reopen it all the time.
