That extra test doesn't look like it makes any sense --- I think it
may just be in completely the wrong place and shouldn't be in
get_match_ret() at all since it's similar to some checks in other
places where we allow zero-length (but not NULL) strings for some
edge cases in some variants of matching.  We should probably
just remove it and see what happens.
