Are you sure? I'm not sure about the g_return_val_if_fail but "*name"
always segfaults when name is NULL.
g_return_val_if_fail(name != NULL, NULL)
also doesn't seem to work. Why don't you just add the NULL check to the
if statement? g_strdup on NULL will just return NULL which should be
the desired result.
