I'm having a problem with the descriptions generated for external users. In, there is this expression for generating the description:

externalSubjects.desc.el = [unverifiedInfo]
${grouperUtil.appendIfNotBlankString(, ' - ',
externalSubject.institution)} [externalUserID] ${externalSubject.identifier}

That expression seems to work fine when the institution was specified on the registration screen. However, if the institution is left empty on the form, the term ${grouperUtil.appendIfNotBlankString(, ' - ', externalSubject.institution)} doesn't work as intended. Instead of evaluating to just the subject name, it comes out in the description as "null". For example, a description like this:

[unverifiedInfo] null [externalUserID]

is a direct member

I tried a few possibilities for fixing this, but always got "null".
