Warnings for arithmetic expressions that will fail such as
x+42 and 1/0. Guards that will always fail.
Those warnings are emitted when the optimiser tries
to evaluate expressions at compile time. So although
there will be a warning for 1/0, there will be no warning
There is some documentation about this, at the end
of the description of compile:file/2:
