The bug reared its ugly head unexpectedly while hacking the leven program that resulted in much larger dialect differences than usual. A faulty test in the code for Cronbach Alpha was harmless as long as string differences are less than 1, which they usually are because of a normalisation. (Unless you added your own normalisation function.) However, this seemed to be a lucky coincidence with the way the compiler works, and not something to rely on. Are you using a compiler that makes the bug harmless? You can test this by running bugtest. If you are lucky, you get this message:
Bug did not manifest. You are probably safe.Probably safe. No guarantees.
