Please ignore all my previous guesses.  I'm adding more comments to
malloc.c and cleaning the macro names, and I *think* I found a
possible problem.  Simultaneously, I think I found one place which
relies on a particular size of unsigned int, so maybe another
unrelated problem may be cleared too.

[And my previous analysis of wrongness of the chunk-header contents
was a pure bullshit.  ovu_size is the size with the overhead
*included*.  As documented!  Sigh...]

Very very sorry,
