** mapping_search can futz with the size, so for excessively large sizes it can sometimes wind up
** with indices that are off the end of the block array.
** So, we protect against that here, since this is the only callsite of mapping_search.
** Note that we don't need to check sl, since it comes from a modulo operation that guarantees it's always in range.
