I also removed the System.exit(1) calls in PiscesTileGenerator.
It doesn't seem like a good idea to shut down the whole VM
because of a rendering bug.

> No, I don't think so. What's happening is that the compiler is trying

> case, that's because it's an OSR compilation and it doesn't have
> enough information to prove it's dead code). So we end up with a
> phi node with a control input whose corresponding data input is
> dead, and this causes problems in some future dominator computations.
> The workaround fixes it by doing the loop unswitching manually.
