Missing sign-off.

If I'm reading the code correctly, the conditional and "true" branch
of the ternary expression are dead code since 'request->url' will
unconditionally be NULL due to the:

    /* URL is reused for MOVE after PUT */
    if (request->state != RUN_PUT) {
        FREE_AND_NULL(request->url);
    }

earlier in the function. If you want to present a meaningful error
message here, I could imagine squirreling-away the URL so it can be
used in the error message, or re-working the code so that
FREE_AND_NULL(request->url) is only done when and if needed.
