Summary: binascii.a2b_hqx("") raises SystemError

Initial Comment:
I noticed the following on Python 2.2, Python 2.3 and 
Python 2.4a1 with the Windows builds on WinXP and 
Win2000:

>>> import binascii
>>> binascii.a2b_hqx("")

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#12>", line 1, in -toplevel-
    binascii.a2b_hqx("")
SystemError: C:\sf\python\dist23
\src\Objects\stringobject.c:3316: bad argument to 
internal function

The empty string is probably wrong input to a2b_hqx, 
but I think it should raise a ValueError at most, not a 
SystemError.

Working on it.

The same error also occurs with a2b_hqx, b2a_uu, b2a_hqx,
and rlecode_hqx.
