There's a fix for this bug at

It's bug 1284 in the OCAML bug-tracking system.

According to the benchmark given in the comments at the end of, my version is essentially the
same speed as the original.

Unlike the original version, it does not do type-unsafe efficiency

The bug database at documents that
bug 1284 has been ignored without comment as of 9 Dec 2003.  My code
is a clean solution to a problem that has been reported repeatedly, so
I find that frustrating.  This looks to me like a clear signal that I
shouldn't bother sending them any other bugfixes.
