I'm pretty sure it is okay to cover it up. In this case the "budget -
1" is supposed to be the upper limit on what can be reported. I think
it was assuming an unsigned value anyway.

Another alternative would be to default clean_complete to !!budget.
Then if budget is 0 clean_complete would always return false.
