I think a complaint would be incorrect here.  Normally complaints are
reserved for bad debug information, but this is just an internal aspect
of the code -- the contract of parallel-for.

I think it may be best to just drop this patch and leave the current
code in place.  It doesn't do anything, but on the other hand, this
seems to be non-obvious, so it may serve a useful assurance purpose.
