Amos, I'm sorry for that -- it is my ENOCOFFEE case of misreading
the patch.  I read it initially as you've added the "exit" line,
but you actually added the "}" line.  So indeed, this is the right
fix and the description matches what the patch does.

I've seen quite alot of cases when the description was like "clarifying
message" or "moving the code to a separate file", but at the same time
other things has changed, and often changed in a wrong way...

So, yes, it is a very good, and trivial, change, and you may use my

The more cases like this is fixed, the better!

Thank you!
