bug#6187: Wrong type argument: number-of-marker-p, nil

I redefined select-safe-coding-system-interactively to try to track
the bug and it confirms that the variable `unsafe', AFTER the “(setq
unsafe …”, has value ((iso-latin-1-unix)) ― which then returns (nil)
when processed with

    (mapcar #'(lambda (x) (car (cadr x))) unsafe)

The correct value for `unsafe' is (iso-latin-1-unix (1 . 7868))

Note that the bug is not present when Emacs starts, it only shows up
after some time.  My wild guess is that somehow regions are processed
incorrectly ― I have some region issues with other Emacs packages too.

The backtrace :

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument number-or-marker-p nil)
  apply(min nil)
  (goto-char (apply (quote min) (mapcar ... unsafe)))
  (progn (pop-to-buffer bufname) (goto-char (apply ... ...)))
