I've traced this to Colin's commit that adds the "passthrough" frontend
(r59807). If I revert that the text frontend works fine again.
It may possibly have something to do with the progress bar STEP increasing
to a value higher than the specified maximum, but that's a guess.
Someone more at home in C than I will have to look deeper than that.
Colin, do you have time?
