Bug Description

Calls to pinyin_get_candidate aren't being checked for validity, resulting in the possibility of NULL candidates being passed to future libpinyin functions, resulting in crashes (example crash attached).

Steps to reproduce:

1) Enable Chinese pinyin layout

2) Type "h"

3) Press the "h" candidate on the word ribbon

Expected result:

"h" is input into a text field

Actual result:

The keyboard crashes.
