Thanks for tracking things down. It's probably worth preserving the details
in a bug.
My vote would be to keep the code simple. I'd be happy with zeroing out the
whole chunk. If you can hide things in a macro, that's fine too.
If somebody thinks it's important to preserve the ideas behind the current
initialization, I'd leave the old code as comment next to the new zero-it-all
code and include the bug number on the old code and/or mention the bug near
where the macro is defined.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
