This warning is thoroughly opaque --- and not occurring with a locally
compiled gcc 8.3.0 on my Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit Intel system --- but the
code isn't exactly crystal clear, either (subtracting a number off then
adding it immediately back on again isn't generally regarded as great
style), and it's quite possible the copy is overlapping.  Also, the last
person to worry about code optimisation in compctl emigrated to the
Undying Lands a decade ago (maybe I can still find the postcard...)

Can somebody verify the following is equivalent apart from dealing with
a possible overlapping copy?  I've no way of ensuring this code gets

Separately, I seem to be having severe problems with --enable-zsh-mem
with that configuration.  It looked like some failed optimisation
involving realloc().  I think we had something similar a while ago?
