To avoid such questions, bug reports should contain exception messages and usually at least some of the tracebacks.

>>> ''[0]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    ''[0]
IndexError: string index out of range
>>> x=None
>>> x[0]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#3>", line 1, in <module>
    x[0]
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable

IndexError should mean object was indexable.
Operations on None should give TypeError.
