(all of these values are very close to products of 1.2%. Is it
possible that there were only ~~80 samples? That probably wouldn't be

All crypto stuff; can't do much about that (as noted before.)

I wonder what this is, and whether it matters.

Interesting. I wouldn't have thought this would appear so much;
it's mostly a "check one variable, and return another." I've added

90% of the calls to this one turn out to be for debugging log
statements that almost never actually result in log output; I've added
some code to catch these early.
