I agree.

Yes, but as I will be submitting a patch for these functions anyway, I thought it not neccessary to fix this in master right now.

I tried failing examples with a daily build (as my master uses the jump version of SWITCH) and in the daily build all works fine (e.g. SWITCH("a","a",1,0)).
That means I must have made a fuzz about nothing, i.e. the problem is confined in the jump version.
Basically, the problem occurs on reading the first argument with GetString(), i.e. before jumping.

I will continue working on that and either fix that neatly or show where the problem occurs.

I'm sorry I bothered you about this...
