This seems to be the most logical result.  Returning a valid but incorrect
result is definitely a mistake.

An exception might be better, but the messages listed in the proposals
don't make sense, a cursory look at the current exceptions doesn't suggest
a logical candidate to me.  NO_PATH_DATA would be an acceptable message.
