Description Richard W.M. Jones 2009-05-21 08:51:14 UTC
We should check that NULL is not being passed
for String parameters.  At the moment if a program
does this, it probably causes a segfault.  The calling
program is technically incorrect, but we should check
for this case anyway, particularly since in some bindings
(eg. Perl) an undefined string parameter might be
passed as NULL.

Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-25 14:49:53 UTC
Moving upstream, since it's only a safety check for incorrect programs

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-05-19 11:34:48 UTC
Patch posted upstream:
