Yes, it's corrupt, it should be

[ Sorry, I'm replying to #11313 even though we think it's dup of #11237. ]

Haven't you got that backwards?

My reading is that find_early_table_space set aside b000-11000 for the
worst case possible, but actually only b000-c000 was needed (because
most of the tables were already there): no problem.
