Thanks for fixing quickly.

I wrote two additional patches for dfa.  First, derive number of
allocation from not argument but number of state in transition table
allocation.  Second, melt down dfastate() into build_state().  Now, I
think that there do not have to be separated.

I also wrote a simple test, but the issue are not always caused, as it
depends on state of memory.  Should we rely to complate the test on
