But in an aside exploration of Mata's behavior with an analogous probe
function, it seems that when a -goto- sends control to the continuation
line as above, it behaves like a -break- and not a -continue-.
That's where I go into denial because I ran an experiment:

Well, I've obviously coded something wrong in the logic of the probe
function.  It still eludes me, but I will be looking into it further.

derrière, to boot.

In any event, thanks, Bill, for setting things straight.
