Wrong Paged Comments Logic

previous_comments_link and next_comments_link both erroneously assume that an empty cpage query variable value means that the comments page is page 1. This is wrong, because when "last" is the page displayed by default under Settings > Discussion, page 1 is the oldest page of comments, which is not the same as the permalink page (the page where cpage would not be specified, ordinarily).
Fortunately, this doesn't seem to affect anything as there's never any point at which *_comments_link are called but WordPress has not set the cpage query variable.
