# Bug

# 
# static PyObject *
# permutations_new(PyTypeObject *type, PyObject *args, PyObject *kwds)
# {
#     ...
# 1   cycles = PyMem_Malloc(r * sizeof(Py_ssize_t));
#     ...
#     for (i=0 ; i<r ; i++)
# 2       cycles[i] = n - i;
# 
# 1. if r=2^30, then r*sizeof(Py_ssize_t)=2^30*2^2=0 (modulo 2^32), so malloc
#    allocates a 0 byte buffer
# 2. r=2^30>0, so we write well beyond the buffer's end
