Bug of the Day

I have reduced today's database-building bug to a simple test case:
If I build a database with four different terms, each one repeated exactly 6648 times, I can reproduce this bug quickly.

I think that I'll leave obscure the derivation of the number 6648.

I don't know exactly when this bug was introduced, but I am pretty sure it has never been exposed in the four years I've been working with this code.
