So ask that question; "I looked at this and I'm not really sure if it's
supposed to work or not - thing X suggests yes, thing Y suggests no but
looks like a bug so..." and so on.

In cases like this (although not I suspect this particular one) the
answer is often that there was't any particular consideration for
whatever unusual case you're looking at.
