This is it - the smallest test case I can find that demonstrates the bug in the PIC24 assembler, by computer search followed by a little bit of human editing.

Here you go! I've got the catnip launcher!

Just finished migrating one computer from Pale Moon to Firefox - a big operation because of stuff like customized ad blocker config and the fact that Web browsing is mission-critical for me. Filled a couple of pages of notes. Now I use this one for a couple weeks to make sure it doesn't make like the Theralizumab disaster before I repeat the process on another computer.
