My question did not refer to the test problem, but to "what did you
try to find the bug?".

No, it does not happen at line 486. Line 486 is a call to the amg
constructor. This does not help you at all inderstanding what goes

What you should do/answer/ask yourself
a) compile with debug symbols enabled
b) run the program under a debugger
c) check which is the last call in Dune land
d) which variable is accessed
e) what is the state of this variable
f) guessing from you error message the problemis an out-of-bounds
   access in a matrix row
g) if (f) is true: is this matrix row really properly filled?
