 I've added a "hack" fix in r4765 which special-cases the jv(3,4)
 discontinuity.   The problem for that combination is in the recur function
 in the jv.c file.

 The iteration starts of with pk = qk = 32 when n=3 and x=4.  This is a
 special-case of the recursion where t=0 after the first iteration, but the
 result is in-correct.   More study is needed to determine what is going
 wrong and if special-casing n=3 and x=4 is the right long-term solution.
