I spent most of Sunday working through the GridText.c cleanup, which had
introduced a bug (misaligned highlighting in color-style), isolated the
piece that was a problem, validated about 70% of the total patch.  A
subsequent patch fixed that problem, but did not note, for example, that
it was fixing a bug in the first patch.  (There are other problems with
some of the other patches, which I'm working on).
