While this patch is certainly sufficient both as a safety and as a quick
fix to the current problem (sorry about that), it seems that the real
issue is that lock__parse() returns success even on parsing failures?
The following patch fixes the issue for me without the above check.

(The removal of locked.ins == NULL in lock__scnprintf() is because it
becomes unused after this. On failure to parse the lock's inner
instruction, the default printing in disasm__line__scnprintf() will be
used, and that is identical to what this ins__raw_scnprintf() call
