Probably yes, although it's not terribly critical - hash being NULL 
there is pretty much a can't happen situation there as rpmDigestFinal() 
wont return NULL hash unless called with NULL ctx which is checked 
earlier in the code.

Yup, that and the recursing bug make 4.9.1 a brown paperbag release :-/
I'll try to get (or something) out soonish, in the meanwhile 
4.9.1 is probably best avoided because of these issues.
