Thanks.  Closed the ticket and removed my pu/ branch.

I just applied the patch that Luiz mentioned on the mailing list[1].
Looking at that patch again I guess it'd be better to replace your stuff
with what's in the patch.  I've put up a pu/fixup-inb-outb-changes
branch to do just that[2].

It's not just more clear, it's the Right Thing to do for string type
constraint lists.  However, for a word type constraint list it would be
the wrong thing to do.

After I fixed the original code, I started to wonder why it was written
like that in the first place.  Then I remembered the Pascal string like
behaviour, where the first element contains the array size, for word
type constraint lists.

Hope this helps,
