Pardon my pedantics, but

Which shows that the array starts with 16 elements, and then doubles.
You've shown that with 10 elements, it's at 16 buckets. Trying this

c:\>perl -le "for (0..10){print qq($_: ) . %_;$_{$_}++}" 0: 0 1: 1/8 2: 2/8 3: 3/8 4: 3/8 5: 3/8 6: 4/8 7: 5/8 8: 7/16 9: 8/16 10: 9/16
shows that it starts at 8 buckets, and shifts to 16 buckets at 8 entries (though only 7 buckets have entries).
