I see how the compiler can get confused about this even though in reality this 
code will never be executed with an uninitialized 'txn' variable.

Just to satisfy the compiler I have slightly modified the code in r22021 which 
I hope should avoid the compiler warning. Can you update to latest trunk and 
try again ?
