Thank you very much for your attention.  I'm not sure how I missed the failure in heavy.t; it happens here, too, and I have updated the proposed patch to address that failure.  Sorry for that mistake.

I'm a little confused by the other failure messages you got, though.  The failures you forwarded me are the ones that test the new behavior.  This error is exactly what I would expect to see if one were to run the new tests against the old version of the library.  I can't reproduce them; make test with my patch applied to 996de84d864e2452987ceb29dbf56f1ce92846b8 comes back clean.  I've attached an updated patch that fixes the heavy.t failure and also makes the failure messages you got less hideous.

Thank you,
