Description

We should do this as a precaution, so we're not re-using an uninitialised address.

This is similar to #23874.

Please see my branch bug24736_028.

I think we might want to backport it to 0.2.8 and later as a precaution, even though I couldn't find any memory disclosures.

Merged to 0.2.9 and forward; skipping 0.2.8 because it is EOL.
