Well, the book suggests *not* to run the tests in Chapter 5.
Then, in Chapter 6, the limits-structnest.c file should be
predictable in that we created it during Chapter 5. How could
your limits-structnest.c file be different than what everyone
else has?

I'm not doubting you ran into a known bug, but how? Were you
running the tests in Chapter 5?
