That's why I'm running the build robot :)  Once I've got some
time[tm], I'll spend it a small web frontend to look into the basic
information (which builds worked/failed, show build logfile, show git
log between working/non-working version.)

I don't know of any--I'm actually not a regular awk user at all.

And actually testing specific awk features isn't codified IMHO. And
while indices start at 1 (so the code was buggy in that way), it might
also be true that the implementation-defined behavior of virtually all
awk variants is to silently s/0/1/. Then, this would be an additional
glitch (not bug) in my mawk.

Your testing looks fine to me. My Debian "unstable" mawk is slightly
older than yours: 1.3.3-17
