No, but if a "bug fix", even if it works for you, introduces a new bug
in a different place, what's the gain?

No, your patch can trivially check for 0 and have the function itself
return a failure. Of course, other parts of leafnode need to be fixed,
but interim bug fixes are generally causing more troubles in the long
run. You patch here, another one patches there, and in the end,
everything breaks.

This is no personal offense, it's just a long way to say "If you fix it,
fix it correctly right away."
