Found it, but there will be no new part of the test suite. The problem
is a simple register conflict. Do you use \dimen0 in your new overlay
optimizations? :D

I use \dimen0 for the automatic width calculation. The macro is grouped
and I thought it is quite safe to do so. But the new beta showed me that
I was wrong. If I remember it right (long ago) there were problems using
\scratchdimen als parameter for \framed, so I changed the register. Can
you please tell me what register I should avoid?

I hope you have not wasted too much time in that.
