It would be nice to have a strategy for being sure that the buffer is
set as soon as possible in every case, so that we do not have to resort
to hacks like this (i.e. set the cursor at many different places so that
we avoid crashes). We should audit the cases where insets are created
without a buffer.
A solution would be to force the presence of a Buffer parameter in Inset
constructors. Then we would see the places where an explicit 0 cannot be
avoided, and see what we can do about it. The only place where 0 makes
sense is in the clipboard as I see it. Even then, the clipboard could be
a buffer in itself if really needed.
This is a long-term solution, of course.
