Description of the change

Avoid throwing an exception due to a None element in a patch sequence.

None elements in a (non-normalized) patch sequence are perfectly normal. With the current code in the patched function, it is certainly possible to hit a crash due a None. See

This branch fixes that by normalizing the sequence before using it in the logging code. It's acceptable to bring the normalize_ps() call outside the try/except block because normalize_ps is not expected to throw. It's relatively simple and doesn't really use its objects besides checking if they are None.
