On what machine architecture was that?

Does it blow up at once, or after a delay?  (IIRC in this case the
object that is to contain the result is allocated on the PARI stack
before the powering starts, and I _thought_ we were checking the size
at that point, but there may indeed be a bug lurking there.)

Could anybody please try to reproduce (or not reproduce) it on
a DEC Alpha, or some other 64-bit thing?  :)

If it doesn't blow up at once, what happens when you turn on
default(debugmem,2) first?

*Please* don't do that.  I hate getting the same message twice within
half a second.  (And I'm not `da boss' anyway.  In this case you may
have something of a point since the code being exercised actually
originated with me a little while ago, but I _am_ reading the list --
I'm archiving it on the website, after all! :^)
