Hi Roland,

we have just debugged the same problem. Your fix looks good. I've tested it with my very simple stand-alone test (see below).
Without your fix, we get an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. With this fix, it runs correctly. Thanks for fixing.

Best regards,

// run with -Xbatch -XX:CompileCommand=dontinline,TestLoopLimit::write TestLoopLimit
public class TestLoopLimit{

    static byte[] bytes = new byte[4];
    static int idx = 0;

    static void write(byte b) {
        bytes[idx++] = b;

    static void test_loop(int size) {
        for (int align = size % 4; align != 0 && align != 4; align++) {

    static final int loop_cnt = 10000;

    public static void main(String args[]){
        for (int x = 0; x < loop_cnt; x++) {
            idx = 0;
        System.out.println("Test passed. Final idx: " + idx);

Hi Roland,

looks good to me!

I'm running some pre-integration testing.

Best regards,
