Probably you're right. But because the current implementation contains already
with "(unknown)" status, I have added an additional condition to produce this.
If you look that ssp is crashing without it, it is a fix.

If 'rv' is wrong then does that mean

I don't know if this a condition indicate a failure. rc contains an adress which
direct into the ntdll.dll.
Perhaps it means something other as used currently, but examinig the content
under that adress produces
no additional infos for me.
