The dead store to local variable are where most of the false positives are,
because java requires that a local variable be initialized before returning
from a method or being passed to one, so assigment to null occurs -
especially before try finally so the variable can be used in the finally
part the constructor still be covered by the try.

I also want to warn you i made some strings alterations that weren't doing
anything viable. Since string is immutable, there were simple things like:
that did nothing, so i turned them into
string = string.trim()
One of these i backed out later since the if immediatly afterward indicated
that the string was expected to be started with a tab (trim affect it).
You can see the code and my backout in these changesets*
