this is because of different ways of processing. While "n/a" is filled 
by the acc, the "null" is filled by pseudo-variable handler. As you 
said, some consistency has to be done. I will take care of it. The 
pseudo-variable handler set the NULL flag of the returned value and 
fills the string value with "null" fields and integer value with 0.
