Cppcheck: Reduction of False Positives: Manual Approach

Hello Luke,

I'm not sure what your modification is doing. I just checked the report you
attached and I compared it with the full report and I see your change
filters out not only false positives. I used to use the cppcheck report to
give my students a small task for their first patch. So it would be helpful
to keep the full report (it can be kept next to the short one I guess),
otherwise I would need to run cppcheck myself.
