"might not". If Q1 in the on state isn't fully saturated, then you may get
base current through Q2. That's where the diode between CQ1 and BQ2 comes in.

Well, you have to check that carefully, you could be just off the edge, or
well in. Measuring the base current, and the voltage on Q1C would be a good
