introduced a NullPointerException is some cases with
`isAssignable(Class<?> current, Class<?> candidate)` when candidate is
null. This happens in `if (isAssignable(gpd.getPropertyType(),
pd.getPropertyType())) {`, leading to a NPE being thrown. This does
not occur in Java 7 and is not documented in any way.
