| Line 434: Buf_AddBytes() can't actually handle a NULL value. I don't know if
val==NULL can happen in practice, but since there was safeguard code there
already, I think it's good if it actually works.
It can. memcpy with 0, length does not touch the buffer.
| Line 1888: This is the main offender. Uh, I guess whoever applies this
should remove that printf.
I've committed that.
| Line 3265: This is an equivalent problem. I haven't been able to exercise
this part of the code, and the code surrounding it is more complex than around
line 1888, so I'm not as confident that this is correct. Looks good to me,
Although both should probably raise an error... I'll think about it.
