The special object .nil has a special usage status in the ooRexx language that can cause unexpected errors when it's used in an equality test on the right-hand-side of the operator and a string object on the left-hand-side. In addition to unwanted NOSTRING conditions getting raised, there are occasional false positives that can result.

The string equality methods should grant special status to .nil and never allow a string object to compare equal to .nil.
