Okay, the problem is based on error handling - you have a missing 'file'
argument. That patch consolidated things to do two things at once
instead of two calls where the second was skipped if the first failed;
and now ends up dereferencing NULL. I didn't notice or test it at the
time, so I get to enhance the testsuite as part of my patch.
