Thanks for finding that, Philip. It looks to me like there must be
something wrong inside the loop if it cares where its iterpool is allocated
from. Would you kindly commit any fix that you find satisfactory, please,
bearing in mind that the priority for this tool is to be simple to hack on
rather than efficient and scalable. (For example, if the easiest fix is to
get rid of the iterpool, then so be it -- that's good enough.)
