msgid of gettext(), dgettext(), dcgettext() C functions can not be 
NULL (domainname can be NULL): "import locale; locale.gettext(None)" 
generates a segfault.

domainname argument of bindtextdomain() have to be a non empty 
string: "locale.bindtextdomain(NULL, NULL)" or 
locale.bindtextdomain('', NULL)" generates an OSError(0).

Attached patch fixes the two bugs.
