So the problem appears to be that the SIGCOMP_INSTR_INPUT_BYTES case, in the

                        if (input_address > ( msg_end - 1)){
                                current_address = at_address; 
                                result_code = 14;
                                goto execute_next_instruction;

code, was going to execute_next_instruction without bumping the cycle count. 
Presumably either RFC 3320 had an error, or we're not correctly implementing

The relevant bits are

8.6.  UDVM Cycles

   Once the UDVM has been invoked it executes the instructions contained
   in its memory consecutively unless otherwise indicated (for example
   when the UDVM encounters a JUMP instruction).  If the next
   instruction to be executed lies outside the available memory then
   decompression failure occurs (see Section 8.7).

   To ensure that a SigComp message cannot consume excessive processing
   resources, SigComp limits the number of "UDVM cycles" allocated to
   each message.  The number of available UDVM cycles is initialized to
   1000 plus the number of bits in the SigComp header (as described in
   Section 7); this sum is then multiplied by cycles_per_bit.  Each time
   an instruction is executed the number of available UDVM cycles is
   decreased by the amount specified in Chapter 9.  Additionally, if the
   UDVM successfully requests n bits of compressed data using one of the
   INPUT instructions then the number of available UDVM cycles is
   increased by n * cycles_per_bit once the instruction has been

   This means that the maximum number of UDVM cycles available for
   processing an n-byte SigComp message is given by the formula:

           maximum_UDVM_cycles = (8 * n + 1000) * cycles_per_bit

   The reason that this total is not allocated to the UDVM when it is
   invoked is that the UDVM can begin to decompress a message that has
   only been partially received.  So the total message size may not be
   known when the UDVM is initialized.

   Note that the number of UDVM cycles MUST NOT be increased if a
   request for additional compressed data fails.

   The UDVM stops executing instructions when it encounters an END-
   MESSAGE instruction or if decompression failure occurs (see Section
   8.7 for further details).


9.  UDVM Instruction Set

   The UDVM currently understands 36 instructions, chosen to support the
   widest possible range of compression algorithms with the minimum
   possible overhead.

   Figure 11 lists the different instructions and the bytecode values
   used to encode the instructions.  The cost of each instruction in
   UDVM cycles is also given:

      Figure 11: UDVM instructions and corresponding bytecode values

   Each UDVM instruction costs a minimum of 1 UDVM cycle.  Certain
   instructions may cost additional cycles depending on the values of
   the instruction operands.  Named variables in the cost expressions
   refer to the values of the instruction operands with these names.

   Note that for the SORT instructions, the formula ceiling(log2(k))
   calculates the smallest value i such that k <= 2^i.

Is that particular case (input_address > ( msg_end - 1)) a failure case?  If
so, it should be terminating the execution of the program, and we should check
for other failure cases that aren't failing.
