bug#2161: 23.0.90; Another failure to convert to mbox


From: jpff
Subject: bug#2161: 23.0.90; Another failure to convert to mbox
Date: Mon, 02 Feb 2009 11:44:53 +0000

I am attempting to convert my main mail file (96Mb) to mbox format.
It stpped after 105 messages having joined tne next message to it, and 
apparently losing the other 17K messages

I cannot see anything wrong with the message being converted

It looks as if it has decided that the form is a quartic, but then
later finds that the x^2 term has a zero coefficient.  It looks as if
I fail to deal with sqrts of perfect squares; I assume that the form
sqrt(x^2) has been simplified before it gets to this code.  At one
level this is a simplification failure, or I could accept that it
happens and treat degenerate cases.  A very simple paliative would be
to add a line "if null numr a then return nil" in look_for_quad, after
the line commented "Re-centre".  The integral then fails, but does not
crash.  I will give it a little more thought.

These two message are treated as one
I have hacked all the other mail mail files to mbox, but this one has me 
totally confused.
