I just realized that I were wrong here, and that this may affect the
choice of severity level.

The problem applies to all architectures where sizeof(int) <
sizeof(size_t), which includes ia64 and maybe other 64-bit platforms.

The reason the self test didn't trigger the crash on non-amd64
platforms is probably due to optimizations and random luck -- the
amd64 build only broke when -O2 was used.  The code is still buggy,
the self-test doesn't exhaust all possible uses of the library that
may happen in the wild.
