If the first fails after &fatal=yes is set, the second check will
never be done.

That is why &fatal exists, so that you can control when the check will
return with an error. If it returned on every error, that would be bad,
but if you couldn't return before setting a variable or other profile
operation, that would be bad too.

Also, there is a bug in Interchange 4.6.1 that ignores the first
failure if the second passes. I don't think that is in play here.
