The latter.

As expected.  That's why it infloops.

These values make no sense.  I guess the optimized binary lies to GDB.

This makes much more sense.

Yes, it helps.  Please try the patch below.  If it solves the problem,
I will install it shortly.  Please try both an optimized and a
non-optimized build, if you can afford that.
