Subject: "uninitialized value used in join" crash from no_escape filter
Hello! I think the no_escape filter has a bug that can cause a crash under very specific conditions. On line 41 of, if the topic variable is undef, that will cause a "Use of uninitialized value in join or string" warning in the return statement in _hsv_escaped_string. I couldn't figure out a test for it, and I could only reproduce it in my Catalyst app through a weird series of steps. Below is my proposed fix. Please let me know if you'd like me to make any changes. Take care and have a great day!
