Thank you! Anton committed a patch to reduce the testcase size, so I think 
this should be fixed now.

No, thats ok. I think someone has narrowed down the issue:

The JIT does fail on minisat, but it is not a regression. So while it is a 
bug, its not critical for this release. If you want to investigate it, 
please feel free :)

Thanks for the help!
