Good, it sounds like the effect of the chunk you previous identified as
related was simply moving the linked list node on as a side effect, or
something like that.

That doesn't make sense.  This is the only place where key / value pairs
are handled and they require some sort of loop increment to work at all.
You're basically claiming they only work by magic.

I can't believe this is a big deal.

Assuming SH_FILE_EXPANSION predates the test suite, I wouldn't be
surprised if it's missing.
