As far as I can see, this is exactly what happens. I am still confused
though - what you seem to report is some expectation of preservation when
you do NOT pass in sane values (or even valid ones) - empty strings have
no meaning in the environment, and thus there is no way to preserve them
in any sense of the word preservation - you can't even represent them in
the environment, so what should the semantic value of empty strings be?
