Visual Studio is trying to be too clever for its own good. If you trace
the logic, you'll see that although valTruncIds is indeed passed
uninitialised in some circumstances, the parameter is only used in those
cases where it has been initialised.

You can avoid the complaint from Visual Studio by simply initialising
valTruncIds to zero. I'll do that for future releases, even though the
code is actually fine as it currently stands.
