Hi, there is a bug in emacs-guix by-name packages searches which is not
terribly difficult to work around, but is somewhat annoying.

It appears that there was some functionality added to emacs-guix such
that, if cursor is over a word, and I execute M-x guix p n, then the
search field is pre-filled with the word underneath cursor. This is a
great feature. However, if cursor happens to /not/ be over a
word (for example, on an empty line) then instead I get an error:

split-string: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

This bug has been around for something like a month, but I didn't
report it earlier, thinking that lots of other people would have
immediately noticed it.

Here is my version and system information:

christopher@nightshade ~$ guix show emacs | grep version
version: 27.2
christopher@nightshade ~$ guix show emacs-guix | grep version
version: 0.5.2-4.8ce6d21
