There was enough information in that report for me, it is a warning from the compile process about a dodgy bit of C code and as such the report is fine.

It is a bit sad that the tool is smart enough to recognize bad code but not smart enough to realise that that bit of code is not callable at all, but that is the current state of static analysis tools. 

Anyway, I fixed this 'problem' a month or so ago, so we can forget about it now.

Best wishes,

Taco
