LibreOffice Coverity Defect Density 0.00

So today's statistics for the latest coverity run over LibreOffic:

LibreOffice:  5,973,881 lines of code in Selected Components and 0.00 defect density

Defect density is measured by the number of defects per 1,000 lines of code, identified by the Coverity platform
11,751 Total defects, 21 Outstanding, 331 Dismissed, 11,399 Fixed
That's the dashboard reported figure. There are 21 unresolved warnings at the moment which works out at a true defect density of 0.003515303, we're in rounding to 0 territory. I reckon 11 of the remaining are really false positives but I'd still like to figure out how to "wiggle" the code to get their data validity check detected correctly.
