Just eyeballing that code, it looks like it will try to fetch the byte
immediately beyond the end of the bit array, when the number of bits is
an exact multiple of 8.  This is unlikely to cause a problem but it
*could* happen that the input is right up against the end of memory.
Could you check whether that is what happened here?  (The important
question is whether the input seems to be sane, ie, "len" isn't huge.)
