OK, I see.  Then the only way out I can think of is to stop going up the chain 
of COMPONENT_REFs as soon as the offset becomes negative.

The very problem I'm debugging:

  SR.37_109 = it.nam;
  SR.38_110 = it.typ;

What's the point in generating MEM_REF to access a simple component?  Of 
course, this is somewhat hidden since the tree pretty-printer is clever 
(evil?) enough to print




but this wastes 2 tree nodes.
