    Ensure we handle len == 0 in ERR_err_string_n
    If len == 0 in a call to ERR_error_string_n() then we can read beyond the
    end of the buffer. Really applications should not be calling this function
    with len == 0, but we shouldn't be letting it through either!
    Thanks to Agostino Sarubbo for reporting this issue. Agostino's blog on
