There's also this related ticket:

I was hesitant to have this fix because "nil" is actually part of the
API. But, given how pervasive this problem is, it seems the best way
to go is to accept the fix and break backward compatibility :(
We might have to issue a warning in the docs.

I'll apply the patches (change nil to nil_). Thomas, I'm CC'ing you
for the heads up.
