Thanks for the fix! One comment below:

It is strange that do_check_range() checks min_val() with strict inequality
and max_val with non-strict one. That's off-by-one problem waiting to
happen when we forget about this detail. Probably make max_val
non-inclusive as well (the parameter max_val suggests the passed value is
the biggest valid one anyway).
