What's the best way to do this, while limiting duplication?
Basically, we have to solve the same problem in two places: unsuccessful
initialization and successful termination.

Oops, sorry about this!  While I'm no fan of excuses, mine is that I use
synthetic speech.  Whitespace errors tend to creep in, at times.

Fixed in my latest revision.  We've had a pr_warn there for years,
and I have no idea why.

Thanks for the review!  If it's basically ok, I'll resend.
