I don't see any crash on Wine or XP when running the test. You are
trying to protect against a hypothetical case where an app specifies
a size > 0 but no buffer. XP won't accept that anyway and it's unlikely
any app will do that on non-XP systems.

In fact your patch will break in another - also unlikely -
situation where an app relies on non-XP behaviour, which is to accept
a null buffer and size > 0 but less than the required size.

So a crash is even desirable here, because it tells us immediately
that the app is doing something peculiar.
