Strange behaviour of "=" and "++"

When I saw this snippet I was totally sure that the output was: 0 1

But it is: 0 0
if we remove line #2 then it will print zeros for ever.

I know that "=" has higher precedence so in line #1 the assignment take place first (so i = 0) and then the post increment (so i becomes 1) but the output is zero

does anyone have any hint ?

cheers,
