I'm not sure what you mean by that.

I don't think there is another bug in the 3-args enumerate

But if some node in the tree-like hierarchy returns a wrong
value then the next node in the tree-like hierarchy will
start writing at the wrong index, and the final value
returned by the top-most call will be wrong.
Without the fix, and given an original list containing only
null, then if you are unlucky enough the final list might look

n = 2
[t23, t24, t12, t13, t5, t6, null, null, ...]

when in reality there are 24 ([t1..t24]) active threads...

best regards,
