This commit adds the missing `type` assignment after attributing a variable's initial value. In some cases, this issue causes an NPE.

This issue has existed for a long time, but the NPE was swallowed until https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/commit/433394203dce55db95caefcb57bac9ec114ebc47 stopped swallowing such exceptions.
