My guess is that you literally set CHARSET_SIZE to 15, whereas you were
supposed to adjust CHARSET_MIN and CHARSET_MAX such that CHARSET_SIZE
would be small enough.  This gives some examples:

It is linked from:

This works for me:

#define CHARSET_MIN			'0'
#define CHARSET_MAX			'9'
#define CHARSET_LENGTH			16
#define CHARSET_SCALE			0x100

(only MIN, MAX, and LENGTH are changed from the defaults).

I hope this helps.
