Maybe there's a better way to do what I want without vectors. I have a 
somewhat complex record type and I want to store multiple records of 
that type in a container of some sort. I want to be able to iterate over 
the container, but I don't care about order (vector) or uniqueness 
(set). When I tried using sets, I got the error below, so I switched to 

internal error: over-ran key in CompositeHash::RecoverVals
