Thank you, and sorry for being a bit slow with my follow up.

I've added the obj = NULL initialization and added your reviewed-by tag.

I'm sending this out as an official patch submission for the archives now
and then I'll apply it to my review-hans branch right away, so no need
for you to do anything :)

Thanks, I'll prep a patch for that too.

Hans
