This was one of the huge scads of `overflows' that DJB's students found, most only holes in the most obscure sense, like this one.
If you're in the habit of assembling code on one machine and running it on another, then this might expose the first machine to attack, I suppose. Nonetheless, this isn't a hole I'd be too terribly worried about. :)
