BTW. If you configure --with-valgrind then make check runs all tests
under valgrind. (make distcheck does the same, but takes a very long
time since it runs the tests multiple times.)

I don't think valgrind memcheck would warn in the above case for passing
around "undefined values". It only warns when those undefined bits are
actually used in a condition or end up being passed as syscall arguments
it knows should have defined values.
