Thanks for the patch! Two comments below:

This would be more understandable as:

	if (k >= 0)
		while (k++ < depth)
			...

Also the loop is IMO wrong because it will run with k == depth as well (due
to post-increment) and that is not initialized. Furthermore it will run
also if we exit the previous loop due to:

                /* change all left-side indexes */
                if (path[k+1].p_idx != EXT_FIRST_INDEX(path[k+1].p_hdr))
                        break;

which is unwanted as well. Which suggests that you didn't test your changes
much (if at all...). So please make sure your changes are tested next time.
Thank you!
