Which makes all the difference!

The forks 100000 test did crash much earlier (at around 60000) in all
tests before, and we know why now.  And while I am writing this,
it is at 95000 and still crunching happily.

I will commit an appropriate change tomorrow (if you don't beat me).
Note that the proc I am using right now is from 0718 with few changes.
The wrap around fix is not included, as can be seen above.
Maybe this is what triggers the enormous libihash growth,
so I will keep it this way until that one is fixed, too.
