Hi David,

What kind of trouble?

It was introduced in 1.2 and the patch was released a couple of days
after that.  It was considered sufficiently small to not require new
release.  The fixed code appeared in version 2.0.

The bug manifests itself only if there are not enough slots in the assoc
table and the library begins rehashing it.  So, that's not exactly a
particular alias that triggers the bug, but the total number of aliases
collected so far.

Better try newer one, e.g. 2.0.  I'd not recommend using releases older
than that.
