Right, the initialization is in an if block. But the use on 1261 is also
in an if block. The conditions for each of the two if blocks are
identical. So both will be executed or neither will be executed
(assuming nothing changes the state so that the conditions evaluate
differently between the first and second if - which it doesn't).
