Hi James,

Thanks for the report.

Hmm, neither can I.  In neither the debian-8-mini nor debian-9-mini CI
environments.  But you can still see it in the CI logs for the last
pipeline that ran before the offending commit.


Only the fedora-24-clang log doesn't have it.

I was about to revert the commit but looking at it now I'm wondering
what I was thinking when I committed that :-(  Changing the pointer
type to something of a different size *obviously* screws up the array

I've cooked up a fix for that (based on e895ee55).  Could you give the
attached patch a try?

Hope this helps,
