CCC created.


 398         private final void valueCheck(V v) {
 399             if (v != null && !(vclass.isInstance(v)))
 400                 throwCCE();
 401         }

Why not directly use vclass.cast ?

I think there may be a subtle change in behaviour with the updates to A*FU, where previously a CCE would be thrown and now a IAE is thrown e.g. consider an erased A*FU to a public field of some class and and a receiver of the incorrect type is passed to an access method. Does not really matter in practice, although the error message will be confusing.
