I'd rather keep the test for a non-null fujitsu in there, but obviously it's
kind of pointless doing it after the first dereference. Since this fixup
overlaps with the one previously discussed with Julia I've taken the liberty
of consolidating these - I'll send the result to the list as a separate
email.
