Yes, it appears so.  This is a long-standing bug.  Thanks for spotting
it.

I don't think a helper function is granted here.  There is a single use
of this construct in the file, and a lot of different constructs: we
have not a helper function for each of them.  Let's try to stick to the
comomn ones only, else we will only add to the confusion.  So, please do
not define a helper function for this case.

Again, I can do the change myself, or else you can do it yourself, as
you like.
