There is an allocation, so it could fail under certain context/system
conditions. There is also branching in that code assuming it could fail,
so we have to assume it can happen (or consider it will never and drop
many allocation checks altogether).  This branching is broken as
demonstrated by Ganesh (because if it is triggered, it will crash). So
while in practice this is not that important (because this allocation is
unlikely to happen), there is indeed a bug that need to be addressed.
