Consider https://gist.github.com/6847299 . The errant behavior goes away if you
remove the I2 inheritance from C2, indicating that C2 implements I2 _twice_
with different interface pointers. This leads to hilariously hard-to-find
errors, since one generally assumes that casting two objects to the same
interface makes them is-comparable if they're the same object. The second I2 in
C2 should either be made illegal or silently ignored.
