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?
