    In some cases, the problem could manifest itself as a JVM crash
    while running this method.
    

Local fix

  • This issue can be worked around using the
    -Xjit:disableCompactNullChecks JVM option. Note however that
    supplying this option may slightly affect performance.
    

Problem summary

  • The problem is caused by the optimizer not properly cleaning up
    after the CompactNullChecks optimization.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The optimizer has been updated to properly clean up after itself
    following the CompactNullChecks optimization.
