It incremented k *once*, but then it did kinda start spinning.
Here's what the compiler was generating:
LocalRefStore ^ auto k (link 0 elt 0)
int k = 0;
LocalRef auto k (link 0 elt 0)
while (k < 10);
Local ^ auto k (link 0 elt 0)
BranchTrue branch L1 BranchModNone
As you can see, it's branching back to the wrong place. It generated
a branch back to the 'continue' portion of the loop, rather than the top.
Easily fixed (and in CVS).
