It may be correct in this case, but "simple matter of" can sometimes 
mask a real problem.  If the function expected the value to be set 
earlier, but the analysis tool finds a path where it's not set, there 
could be a more real bug.

Is zero the right value?  Why not, 1, -1, or 42?

=0 may be perfectly good in this case.  But beware of quick code fixes 
to silence compiler warnings.
