No idea why I put the test way down there.  Probably because it was
written at a different time than the others.  It does seem rather odd
since we can test it as soon as the know the size of the argument list.

I've got no objections to moving the test elsewhere, though like you I
would like to know why Jakub added the test elsewhere.
