Pulled, let me know when you have a real fix :-)

For others, Arnaldo and I suspect that the failure case is
when an offset is negative.  Since the offsets are unsigned
and 32-bit this will do the wrong thing when used as an
offset of a 64-bit pointer as the 32-bit "negative" value
will be zero instead of sign-extended.

If this theory proves true, the fix is to make the offsets
signed 32-bit quantities.
