Thanks. The program runs fine, it climbs up until 8192. This confirmed a
hunch I had. The problem only manifests itself when the lower idr
numbers aren't actually being used. The thread
http://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2004-July/msg00003.html seems
somewhat related to this problem, but it suggests that this was fixed in
2.6.7.
