Bogus is a bit strong. We explicitly mention in the manual that one can
use values from 0 to 255 as labels. If a user is obstinate enough to use
255, he might run into bug on certain machines. Yes, this is a lot of
ifs and whens and I agree with you that this patch is unnecessary in
most cases, but nevertheless it does prevent a potential problem.
