It was presumably the architecture. If it's possible to make GCC
change the size of a pointer on a box from 8 bytes to 4, I don't know
The bug would have affected any machine where pointers and ints were
not the same size: an array of ints was being sorted, but part of the
routine treated them like pointers. It's not the sort of error I'd
usually make, but in the middle of refactoring something complex, I
intentionally left that for later -- I knew it would come back to
haunt me and I didn't want to add any more complexity at that stage.
