      Description

      A NullPointerException is raised when compiling a module via {{javac}} (12) using {{--module-source-path}} that was already compiled by a newer version (13) of {{javac}}.

      Tried to reproduce it with {{javac}} 13 and 14 -- those version don't seem to be affected.

      {{
      Running javac -d bin\realm\test\jigsaw\classes --enable-preview --release 12 --module-path bin\realm\test\modules;bin\realm\main\modules;lib --module-source-path src\modules\*\test\java --module-version 2-ea --module it

      warning: bin\realm\test\jigsaw\classes\it\module-info.class: major version 57 is newer than 56, the highest major version supported by this compiler.
        It is recommended that the compiler be upgraded.
      1 warning

      An exception has occurred in the compiler (12). Please file a bug against the Java compiler via the Java bug reporting page (http://bugreport.java.com) after checking the Bug Database (http://bugs.java.com) for duplicates. Include your program and the following diagnostic in your report. Thank you.
