[RC5] Chance of "the" key being in faulty buffer

It seems to me the chance of a faulty buffer containing the key is higher
than average as finding a possible key does result in the execution of a
different, less frequently executed part of the software. The chance of
bugs in this part of the code would therefore be higher than average, so in
the case of finding a possible key you'd stand a higher than average chance
of buffer corruption.
