Please do not waste your time bisecting things that we broke! ;)

It was easy for me to track down the problem. The tactic for the new property "rel_cases" does not terminate on this example. I have disabled the generation of the property altogether (change 6bb3dd7f8097) until this is fixed.

As a workaround (for this and future tactic issues), you can always try to "declare [[quick_and_dirty = true]]" right before and disable the option right afterward (and let us know of course!).

Sorry for the trouble.
