Me too.

Sorry it broke.  Since I don't have the hardware I can't test very well.  I
had a patch that moved those functions, but I broke something else and
re-simplified.  I'll send you a patch, and maybe together we can do it

Yeah.  That seems like the "root" of the problem.  Because of the way the
statictree is made, anything done in device order ends up being depth-first.
You have to specify to make things breadth first, which seems like the
correct way.
