For the sake of other readers who don't want to have to reverse engineer 
the actual cause of the problem, the original code has two Method.invoke 
sequences: one for a static method and which passed a null receiver; one 
  for a non-static method which passed a non-null receiver. The 
refactoring extracted the invoke logic but always passed a null receiver 
- which was wrong for the non-static case. The fix always passes a 
non-null receiver to fix the non-static case, and which is ignored in 
the static case.

Reviewed. Trivial.
