One point behind the bug report is to give a little reward to Java coders who write dominating tests that exclude a.length==0, as:

 if (a.length == 0) goAway();
 else return a[i & a.length-1];

Kris, can your patch do this?  The logic in IfNode can probably elide the duplicate dominating test, if the right normalizations occur.  ��
