EVALUATION The profiling of nulls in the interpeter was accidentally removed in the putback for 6337834. http://prt-web.sfbay/net/prt-archiver.sfbay/data/archived_workspaces/main/c2_baseline/2007/20070719212032.jrose.6337834/workspace/webrevs/webrev-2007.07.19/ The fix is simply to restore that code.
