Fix IndexError exception when paginator gets called with empty object #246

Calling the paginator with an empty object (e.g., like it is called when you call !otname list if there are no names in the list) currently results in an IndexError exception. It's probably a good idea to go over all paginators to check if the all suffer from the same bug.

Either add a check or add an empty line when the input object is empty.
