That did not make any difference.  The way I see it, the only way to
convince the compiler it really needs to do this loop more than once is to
make it think it is not overwriting the same variable every time.  The
subscript was the cheapest way I could think of to do that.  Any other
suggestions on how to do this are welcome.
