What OS are you running?  Exactly what command line did you use?  What type

populates state.type with the contents of struct stat.st_mode which is not
zero even for a mode-0 file, because other bits (the bits we are interested
in, in fact) are non-zero, at least on the system I am testing on.

I believe that the fix is to remove the assertion, since it is valid I
suppose for st_mode to be zero, depending on the value of S_IFREG on your
