For a non-Open MBean, an operation with a void return type results in an "Operation Completed Successfully" message. For an Open MBean, where the return type is specified as SimpleType.VOID, invocation results in a "Operation returned null" message.

"Operation completed successfully" message (as per non-Open MBeans)
"Operation returned null" message (as per non-void operations that return null)
This bug can be reproduced always.
