This is the patch, I'm still working on a testsuite addition:

This bug seems to be present in HEAD too. If so, can you please commit the
patch there too?


Excellent!  Thank you :-)

  For now, I'm giving up on a test on the branch - the only way to
reliably test it is to create an expected output file of at least 512k, which the testsuite mechanism on the branch is not really equipped to do.
 I suppose we could backport the autotest framework to the branch, but
that also involves work. So for now, the only test of this on the branch
is whether m4 can autoconf itself.

I'm amazed at how much effort you've put into the branch already.  I was
just letting it tick over and fix reported bugs so that I could work on
HEAD... :-)

  But for head, here's the patch,
including the testsuite addition (have I mentioned how much I like autotest?).

Autotest has revolutionised libtool testing too. Of course, there's nothing to stop you running the HEAD testsuite on the branch binary like we sometimes
do with libtool...
