        Description

        Executing the following code crashes the VM with a segmentation fault. The whitebox API functions should be more stable. In this case a NullPointerException should be thrown.

        public class Test {
            private static final WhiteBox WHITE_BOX = WhiteBox.getWhiteBox();

            static public void main(String[] args) {
                WHITE_BOX.isMethodCompiled(null);
            }
        }
