This work actually shows that the IMHO correct change by Paulex to an 
innocent function findError may affect other places where errno may not 
be set. This function used to always return an error code in "default" 
case because it didn't have case for 0. Now it shall return 
HYPORT_SUCCESS in such cases, and more than one place that I've found 
today may be affected where error is returned by system API, but errno 
is not set to any kind of specific error.
