Some change between 3.19 and 4.0-rc1 has broken the FPE such that some
code running on an Octeon II is subtly not working.

eg.

  $ echo "1 2" | gawk '{ print $1 }'
  1 2

which should output (and does output on 3.19)

  $ echo "1 2" | gawk '{ print $1 }'
  1

I'm going to try bisecting this over the next few days.

We've been here before...
