Hi Charlie,

Having looked at this commit, I now realise it's wrong :(  According to
the man page, -n tests for return string length and according to the
macro, SWIG is set to an empty string. However, the resulting string
would then become 'xx' which would still evaluate as true since it has a
length greater than zero.

The attached patch fixes this, and does a little bit of tidying up at
the same time.
