Alright, that passes the test cases I added for bn2dec (which admittedly 
are a very small subset of the possible inputs it could encounter, and 
much smaller than some of the inputs ssh would give it).

I'm tempted to generate a bunch of really big numbers at and test with 
those too, but I don't much like the idea of nondeterministic regression 

Based on the other failure you reported, I still suspect you have some 
problem in OpenSSL although it's not exactly the same as the one I was 
describing on HP-UX.  I found that using less aggressive compiler 
options for OpenSSL stopped the problem from occurring, perhaps the same 
would be the case here?

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
