I believe I've run down the two issues to mistakes in a copy
constructor. However, I need to test(1) with large dictionaries having
key hashing collisions to be sure my fixes - as well the previously
existing code - work correctly.
Posting immediately to confirm the previous code has the potential to
"cross dictionaries" if you are using '#declare dic2 = dic1;' like
encodings. Tangled and orphaned entries are possible.
(1) I suspect jr's recent foreach include work will come in handy! :-)
