If there is going to be another 1.2.x release, would it be possible to 
fix bug #26303:

Many OpenSolaris users are complaining about crashing and core files
being frequently left around due to this bug.  In multi-user server
environments, the crash happens frequently enough to end up being a
processing and disk space issue.

It also seems fairly straightforward to fix - or at least avoid the
crashing.  To avoid the crash, the code just needs to handle NULL's
