I am not interested in fixing bugs as an intellectual exercise.  If
you are planning on removing that code, no point in trying to get
acquainted with the current code.

The dump file now contains some large sections of zeros at the end,
but I presume that those will just be Omega's 64k register arrays.
There is vast seemingly repetitive content earlier on in the dump;
I'll see whether I can make anything of it.  Of course, a large number
of character nodes is to be expected, but there might be more
involved.
