Here's a patch as you suggested:

Isn't there a way to write a test that actually triggers the bug we're trying to work around?
Not that I'm aware of (it was the following entry from
SCO's fix list:
141. A bug was repaired in which an inlined function call, having been
    passed a null pointer, would trigger an internal C compiler error when
    this parameter was the target of a strcpy() or strncpy() call.

If you want to write a test, fine, but I think I've done my part which is report the bug to SCO, get a fix released, and then change our stuff to
detect it.

See the discussion referenced in the template file (7-8/AUG/2003 on -Hackers).
