Ah, of course! I had been building without assertions, as I was doing
performance testing. With --enable-cassert, it failed for me as well
(and there was even a compiler warning pointing out one of the issues).
Sorry about that.

Here's a fixed version. I'll go through Peter's comments and address
those, but I don't think there was anything there that should affect
performance much, so I think you can proceed with your benchmarking with
this version. (You'll also need to turn off assertions for that!)
