                   ^^^^^

from gcc(1):
	"These warnings are made optional because GCC is not smart
	enough to see all the reasons why the code might be correct
	despite appearing to have an error."

I do not see this warning with gcc 4.7.2 or 4.8.1. Which version are you
using?

The code does:

static void get_prompt_str(struct gstr *r, struct property *prop,
[...]
	if (head && location) {
		jump = xmalloc(sizeof(struct jump_key));
[... different basic block ...]
			if (head && location && menu == location)
				jump->offset = r->len - 1;

If the second "if" is true, then the first one was true as well, and
"jump" is initilized.
