I haven't been able to get this to happen on various Linux systems or
Solaris 8.  The trace implies its happening in the code that recreates the
function in text for output.  Finding out where the final taddnl() is being
called from might help.  It's possibly an inconsistency with allocation
that's been hidden up to now.
