Probably so.  But couldn't it be problems with valgrind and its handling
of mpz_set_str or functions it calls, or mpz_mul, mpn_mul, mpn_mul_n,

Perhaps it would be better to make a self-contained test case, i.e. a
test case which does not depend on GMP?  Just some directly assigned
unsigned long[] vectors and a call to an included mul_basecase, and then
printf of the (poor) result?
