Here it is.

I did notice one other oddity. The bitmap code doesn't do any sort of
progress reporting. So progress is enabled, we'll _just_ count the
recent-but-unreachable entries in the progress meter.

That's not entirely wrong (it represents the actual traversal work we're
doing), but is a little funny. However, I think the best thing to do for
now is to leave it there. The right path forward is for the bitmap code
to learn about progress reporting, too (for this case, but also for
others). But that's a more involved topic, and I don't want to hold up
this fix for it.
