Hmm, how odd.  It appears you're right.  I'd say it's probably better to
make the first patch correct, but it seems a lot less important if it's
in an unreachable code path.

I'll leave it up to you guys and the security team whether or not it's
worth fixing.  The technical part is trivial - it's both an obvious bug
and an easy fix, but I don't want to force the security team to review
more than we already ask them to.
