My brain wasn't working at all yesterday or I would have given it a better try.
But getting up before 3am, sitting in airplanes for 10 hours, then having a really
bad night's sleep and diving for nearly 5 hours all conspired to have me a long
way away from my personal best :-)

I did bisect at least the crash so that should give a good starting point where
to look.

I have a few minutes this morning, but if Berthold will look at it this afternoon,
then I'll instead look at PRs and whatever else has piled up in the last two
days (so we don't duplicate work).
