 No, in this case it is not (it is verifying a memory hash). I haven't found
 exactly where it is set, but I guess it living on the stack is a bug.
 However, there are two more bugs:
 Index: bcopy.c

 (inside the memmove implementation used by sparc64) always fires for
 the memmove's called by the BN lib here. This is obviously wrong,
 but: the firing assert does not terminate the program, but during handling
 of it somewhere the stack/memory corruption changing the encoded "hashalg"
 to zero happens.
