Description Robin Sheat 2012-07-31 11:20:13 UTC
In some cases (I don't really know the cause, but it doesn't matter) the issuedate in the 'old_issues' table ends up with NULL. In the case, there is an error when converting that date to the proper form during circulation (possibly happens elsewhere too, but that's where I saw it.)

This should be put into 3.8 also.

Bug 8532 - improve robustness when converting dates

If undef is passed to the date format conversion function, it dies. This
can happen when you have old data in the database. Better to handle it
in some fashion rather than die, so now it just returns undef too.

I replace "return undef" with just "return" to pass perlcritic
