Comment (by ciaranm):

 The issue is that if SLOT= is specified, we expect a valid slot name. ""
 is not a valid SLOT name, and even if it were, it wouldn't match SLOT="0"
 etc, so it would not do what the authors expect.

 I'm generally opposed to adding patches to work around invalid inputs.
 Instead, could you write a patch for Portage that makes it do better input
 validation, so this stuff doesn't happen again?
