I checked the inspect module unit tests and discovered the test for this 
function was only covering one of the half dozen possible execution paths.

I've updated the patch on SF, and committed the fix (including PJE's and 
Neal's comments) to the trunk.

I'll backport it tomorrow night (assuming I don't hear any objections in the 
meantime :).
