Interesting enough, nfrootsQ *was* heavily tested: my initial replacement of the (slightly broken) inlined root lifting code by (more broken) ZpX_roots instantly created tens of regressions in the test-all suite. It required a combination of non-monic polynomials (this we had in abundance, e.g. from elltors testing), lots of rational roots compared to the degree (this we had also, but not in combination with the first point) and a little bad luck to exercise the bug...
