        Description

        When compiling this test case:

        class Test {
          int m(boolean flag) {
            int myInt;
            label:
            {
              if (flag) {
                myInt = 1;
              } else {
                break label;
              }

              return myInt;
            }
            return -1;
          }
        }

        javac generates this incorrect LVT table for method m:

        LocalVariableTable:
                Start Length Slot Name Signature
                    6 0 2 myInt I <-------------- length is set to 0
                    0 10 0 this LTest;
                    0 10 1 flag Z
