This hunk allowing the examination of the long name if there is not a
short name is something else entirely.

You don't describe it in your summary, and don't make the case that
this is the correct behavior.

This should probably be split out into a separate patch if it is the
right thing to do, or drop it if (as it looks) there is no point in
that change.
