A lot of the code that accesses the ref member variable has checks
for null and since it is a WeakReference I assume the cause of this
error is the Garbage Collector removing the reference. Adding a check
for null in the rehash method seems to avoid the error and all unit
tests pass, but I would like confirmation from a Properties expert
(Andreas?) that this is a valid fix before committing the change.
If your suggestion fixes the issue, by all means, commit. It should not
hurt to insert a check there.
I'll have a closer look at underlying causes one of the coming days.
Anyway, thanks for spotting this. The possibility of such issues
arising, was precisely the reason I did not include it in the 0.94
Thanks for the prompt reply! I've now committed the check for null in
the rehash method.
