Not really. The interesting part is 'was this done with the same version

Note that valgrind has a feature to blacklist false positives and issues
(like this one) that don't matter at all.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
