And it should have a test - which has nothing to do with ASM and everything
to do with improving test coverage.

Bugs are bugs - and any form of meaningful test would have caught this.

For the majority of the ASM code - the algorithm implementations we have
tests that cover things in a decent manner.

Improving tests is the solution - not whacking ASM code. Tests will catch
issues across *all* implementations.
