package main

import (

func main() {
	b := make([]byte, 128)
	for i := range b {
		b[i] = 1
	if bytes.IndexByte(b, 0) != -1 {
		panic("found 0")
	for i := range b {
		b[i] = 0
		c := b
		*(*int)(unsafe.Pointer(uintptr(unsafe.Pointer(&c)) + unsafe.Sizeof(uintptr(0)))) = 1<<31 - 1
		if bytes.IndexByte(c, 0) != i {
			fmt.Printf("missing 0 at %d\n", i)
		b[i] = 1

This succeeds with GOOS=darwin GOARCH=amd64 and GOOS=darwin GOARCH=386 but fails with GOOS=nacl GOARCH=amd64p32 for all i >= 15.

The problem is overflow in runtime·indexbytebody.

This is what was causing the trybot failures in CL 97523.
