comments_open causes PHP notice in certain cases

when comments_open() is called for a non-existant post (either a bad ID, or no ID passed and called from a non-single page), a PHP notice is caused. Ideally, plugins shouldn't be doing this, but a simple null check in comments_open() fixes the problem.

oh, and the PHP Notice that is triggered is:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in .../wordpress/wp-includes/comment-template.php on line 776

  • Component changed from Comments to Warnings/Notices
  • Version changed from trunk to 2.5

pings_open() has the similar code (introduced in [6716]):

Seems like the notice is appropriate in the case if a non-existent post, not sure if we should hide it. Related: ticket:17299:6.

Maybe doing_it_wrong message?. A PHP notice isn't really telling something.
