Fixed bug 2596 - SDL_SetError fails on on NULL on systems with vsnprintf

sfalexrog

On systems with vsnprintf call SDL_SetError fails when passed a NULL as an argument. SDL's implementation checks for NULL (as seen in the commit: https://hg.libsdl.org/SDL/rev/5ba49d7a39a0), but system implementation may crash.

    11 Simple DirectMedia Layer is a cross-platform development library designed
    12 to provide low level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, and graphics
    13 hardware via OpenGL and Direct3D. It is used by video playback software,
    14 emulators, and popular games including Valve's award winning catalog
    15 and many Humble Bundle games.

    17 SDL officially supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android.
    18 Support for other platforms may be found in the source code.
    19 
    20 SDL is written in C, works natively with C++, and there are bindings 
    21 available for several other languages, including C# and Python.
    22 
    23 This library is distributed under the zlib license, which can be found
    24 in the file "COPYING.txt".
    25 
    26 The best way to learn how to use SDL is to check out the header files in
    27 the "include" subdirectory and the programs in the "test" subdirectory.
    28 The header files and test programs are well commented and always up to date.
