Hmm, may be you are right. I was thinking about value numbering due to 
the same hash value. But to have the same hash the input should be the 
same and it should be replaced in caller already as you said. May be 
different branch? But then has includes control edge too.

Then in what cases your new check (_idx >= idx) fails?
