Maybe. Also I'm thinking the code thinks actual_regions_needed >=
in_regions_needed, but that doesn't seem like a guarantee. I think
this call sequence with the same t->f range would violate that:

region_chg (regions_needed=1)
region_chg (regions_needed=1)
region_add (fills in the range)
region_add (in_regions_needed = 1, actual_regions_needed = 0, so
assumptions in the code break).

Luckily it seems the ltp readily reproduces this, so I'm working on
reproducing it. I should have a fix soon, at least if I can reproduce
it as well.
