Somehow hit a bug in the go compiler.

Fixed by:

v1, v2 := fn()
return v1, v2

instead of

return fn()

@21stio No idea. The affected line is here:

I don't remember what version of go I am using off the top of my head, but should be latest stable.

I spent 20 minutes Saturday debugging a thing in Lua where I needed parentheses because I was returning 2 values

Just saying 😎

@cj This looks less like a bug and more like the typical kind of annoyance that happens when a language supports multiple return values that are supported by syntax and calling conventions but not actually a data structure.
