Ugh, of course.  I'll commit the following patch once it clears
testing.

commit 50ede648e6ff67e00b5a842d466994d0c657b1ae
Author: Siddhesh Poyarekar <siddhesh@redhat.com>
Date:   Tue Jul 8 16:40:24 2014 +0530

    Check value at resplen2 if it is not NULL
    
    There was a typo in the previous patch due to which resplen2 was
    checked for non-zero instead of the value at resplen2.  Fix that and
    improve the condition by checking resplen2 for non-NULL (instead of
    answerp2) and also adding the check in a third place.
