This is a bug in the changes I made to the call function
implementation. I wasn't sure what was supposed to happen to a
function that expected a kw argument but was called without one. I
thought I saw some crashes when I passed NULL, so I changed the
implementation to pass an empty dictionary.
(Is the correct behavior documented anywhere?)
If a NULL value is correct, I'll update the implementation and see if
I can rediscover those crashes.
