Reproducing the bug is a bit tricky; I have to instrument the buggy
routine and then adjust the filler text in the test case by hand.
3.0, 3.2 (nee 3.1), and mainline all want different lengths of filler

I can say that I reproduced the bug under laboratory conditions using
top of trunk and top of 3.2 (nee 3.1) branch, and that the same
procedure fails to provoke a bug using the top of the 3.0 branch,
where the memory allocation code is different.  I can also say that
2.95, being the last release to use cccp.c, handled stringification
quite differently and is unlikely to have this bug.  I haven't managed
to reproduce the bug "in the wild" - i.e. using compilers I didn't
build myself, or without instrumentation and tweaking.  However, we
have the original report from the FreeBSD people to say that it does
occur in the wild.  Is that good enough to call this a regression?
