Another LC9.6.9rc2 regression? This time with Datagrids

there's another option, which is to investigate the polygrid. i've been
messing with it, because it does seem to be faster than a dg.
but first, i don't think i can resist trying to see why this is breaking.
if i do (and, instead work on this app i'm working on), it will demonstrate
the sort of self-control that i'm legendarily lacking. OOH! SHINY!

On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
