A function that has optional argument doesn't necessarily support
invocation without arguments in any arbitrary context.  It could
support that just in some specific cases.  You can clearly see in the
function that when Start and END are nil, the function sets them to
some values, but those values might not make sense in some arbitrary
invocation context.

Anyway, this discussion would have been much less theoretical if you
would to show what exactly did you do in ert tests that caused the
problem.
