Just a minor thing -- Valgrind did show a buffer overrun in the code, and
I added asserts and showed that it writes beyond the end of a temporary
array, so it is definitely a bug in component_index.

I would appreciate any comments on that you have. They should be a
separate ticket from the component_index one, though.
