The way I read the code, the arrays are _not_ initialized.

And no, they don't have to be initialized due to non-MARK_STACK
architectures; the code that puts data into those arrays progressively
GCPROs only the initialized part of the array.

And IMO, it is not a good idea to waste cpu cycles initializing
(large) arrays that are subsequently filled with valid data.

But if you can show me the code that INITIALIZES those arrays, I will
believe you (and remove that code :-).
