 The problem is that the frompyfunc ufunc was apparently leaving NULL spots
 in the output object array.  This was causing problems downstream as most
 OBJECT functions were not expecting NULLs.  This has been fixed because

 filled by specific functions.  But, if the array creation function is
 called and then for some reason the array is not filled, then we need to
 be able to handle that situation in the OBJECT function calls.  A NULL
 pointer is usually treated as None (but sometimes 0 if a math operation is
