Ok, I built master. As you said, it's been fixed and now it compiles without
problems. That's the good news.

The bad news is that it bombed on the first script that I tested it with. On the
second script also. A malloc corrupting memory somewhere. Tomorrow I will
compile it with debug flags to see what is going on.

So I reinstalled 3.7-stable and this runs perfectly...
