As bug#13805 indicates, `read-regexp' should return an empty string
when the caller specifies that (car DEFAULTS) is nil.

This is like what `read-from-minibuffer' does.  But note that
`read-from-minibuffer' is even more strict, and doesn't return
the default value even if it's specified, i.e. typing RET
after evaluating

(read-from-minibuffer "Prompt: " nil nil nil nil "default")

returns an empty string instead of the default value.
This is because its arg DEFAULT-VALUE acts more like
a suggestion available for M-n whose values should not be
returned for empty input.
