This is also noted in the comments when we fixed the invalid
c-l logic (overflow/underflow) some time ago.

This was, iirc, to handle cases where a strtol could possibly set it
to NULL; someone, can't recall who, seemed to remember one implementation
which did that, so we just figured to-hell-with-it and add a safety
