    Thanks for your report. However, if a bug is fixed in 8.2, then this PR
    should be closed.
 I cannot *confirm* the bug is fixed in 8.2, only that my example program, which
 fails quickly in 8.1, does not failed after an hour of running on 8.2. It would
 be better to have confirmation the bug was found and actually fixed.
