Hi Chris, thanks for looking into this.
As for ArgumentIterator::next, I must admit, I found this patch in our code base when taking over the code. I believe that an issue would be seen if an attach operation has 2 or 3 arguments and the first one is NULL/empty. I guess such a situation can't happen with the attach operations currently existing in OpenJDK as none of these ops would allow such type of arguments. However, in our implementation, we have for instance enhanced the "dump_heap" operation to work with null as first argument where one usually would specify the desired output file name. We implemented a mechanism to compute a default filename when the param is left blank. So we need the fix for that case, I guess. I'll run the patch through the submission forest now and do some jtreg testing.
