I am a little closer to this bug, maybe I even found the cause of it.
I found that process_equivalence() is called from:


The problem is with the two functions in path/equivclass.c,
as process_equivalance() and those functions are all walk
the tree, and the current RBTree code can only deal with
one walk at a time. We need to push/pop the iterator state
to be able to serve more than one walkers.

Also, we need to split out the tree modifying part from
process_equivalence() somehow, as the tree walking
also cannot deal with node additions and deletions.
