Björn, hrm, I hadn't really considered that bug because there wasn't a
segmentation fault & crash in my case, something that Richard hints at
in his commit message.  ... Ah, now I think I understand.  Reading is
hard.  :-)

So Richard didn't have segfaults immediately; instead, he had the exact
same problem that I saw.  Then he fixed something, and after that fix,
then he gots SIGSEGV due to similar type errors elsewhere.  Ah.
