Ideally yes, compilers are bug free.
Practically no, compilers are NOT bug free.
Look at the thread "Books for advanced C++ debugging". There, I ask for
literature about debugging C++ code bases. The unanimous answer was that
there isn't any actually. A deep search both in google and in Amazon.com
yields only beginners books.
The irony of that statement is that the problem you had in the other
thread was purely a C problem; nothing in your problem was C++
