There are the two CVE IDs above, instead of one CVE ID for "did not
check ... in any way."

CVE-2014-5471 is about the need for code to prevent unchecked
recursion (CWE-674), whereas CVE-2014-5472 is not about CWE-674. On
some systems, CVE-2014-5472 might have only a minor security impact by
enabling a user to start an unkillable process (i.e., it would be
minor if there were a low limit on the number of processes the user is
allowed to start).
