I believe the technical term for that is "falling through the cracks". 
I'll have to speak to my assistant.  Oh, right....  :-/

I applied your patch.  Thank your for sending it, and for the reminder. 
Sorry about the delay.  

Regarding empty/NULL in ct-lib, I added it to BUGS.  

ct-lib doesn't get the attention it deserves.  No one has contributed much
to it in the last few years.  As for me, I don't know the API very well,
and don't have much cause to learn it.  So little problems like this hang
around until someone digs in and figures out what to do.
