I presume that the real error in the compilation occurs later; the
quoted part is likely just an additional, minor error which is an
easy way to differentiate affected compilations. Like a canary.
The note Ian quoted did not claim that the mistmatched p and q were
the cause of the bug, but rather that later miscompilation were.
