I *think* this happens because TeX essentialyl sees


There is an almost certainly related comment in the function total_pw() 
that says:

*        if (type(r) = disc_node) and
*           (type(p) = disc_node) and
*           (pre_break(p) = null) then
*        { I cannot remember when this case happens but I encountered it once }

but after that discovery, now I am stuck.
