Hello Alexander,

    I like the patch, but it would be best if you included ChangeLog
entries that detail the changes.

> found a location in fatal error area where compiler complained about a function returning whilst it should not return. in fact it was dependent on a variable that could be set to anything.
> imagine a problem damages some data including the conditional value and then faults for whatever reason - the thread would be able to return into the application code and possibly causing further data corruption including e.g. some data on file systems.
> more trivia fixes and enlightening comments are included in the attached patch.
