Hi Jonathan,

thanks for fixing this! I've looked at the change and it looks good to
me (but I'm not a reviewer).
The only minor flaw I found is that you declare the helper variable
'int rc = -1' but never assign it. Instead you could just return '-1'
directly where you currently return 'rc' and remove 'rc' altogether.

I'm currently still doing test build and I'll run some tests. I'll let
you know if I should see any problems.

By the way - does this change fix a real problem or is it just an
improvement of the current implementation (just curious)?

Thank you and best regards,
