If instantiation of the document wrapper fails we get an empty handle.  Using 
an empty handle in ForceSet will lead to a null pointer dereference.

We just need to bail out in that case and clear the cache.

Changed paths:

Add missing null handle check to document wrapper caching code.

If instantiation of the document wrapper fails (for instance in out of
memory situations) we get a null handle which will lead to a crash when
using ForceSet.
