null slices show "Children could not be evaluated" when hovering.
It would be nice if the normal expansion worked, but it was empty instead (no
children listed). The error message leads you to think something is wrong; bad
pointer or something. (yes, null *is* a bad pointer, but if length == 0, any
pointer should be accepted without producing the error)
Same story for null strings obviously.
