Also a good idea - back when I worked with 6805, Motorola actually
recommended in their databooks to periodically refresh the TRIS
registers [whatever they called them], just in case they are
changed by ESD/noise/etc. This should be easy to do in the outermost
code loop, since the TRIS are usually set on bootup and rarely changed,
in most cases.
