There might be another potential issue in annotation__count_and_fill.

/* Hide data when there are too many overlaps. */
if (ch->reset >= 0x7fff || ch->reset >= ch->num / 2)
return;

When ch->reset is 0 and ch->num is 1, it returns directly. But for this
case, the data doesn't need to be hidden since there is no overlap
happening.

I will post v2 and add this fix.

Thanks
