In vanilla 2.1.5 there are a couple of paths to that error, I forget
the details, but the test in CookHeaders.py definitely didn't protect
all of them.  I posted a bug report to the tracker about one I found
months ago.

I'm fairly sure that Kikuchi-san fixed this later as part of some
other changes, so you could upgrade, or look for my bug report if I'm
wrong about the fix.
