I suspect they're not null.  Based on my own experience, I guess what
happened is that t-m-f-u hasn't been run in a while so there were a
lot of updates.

No, it wouldn't, because there's an excellent chance you'd screw up
t-m-f-u and somebody would have to fix things eventually.

t-m-f-u followed by C-x C-b.  In XEmacs, I can't sort on the mode
AFAIK, which would be really convenient when I've got 100 other
buffers open.
