Spring does not like IBM's Java Runtime Environment

I had to learn the hard way that Java JVMs from from different vendors may behave slightly differently - As it turn out, one of my little apps was running fine on Sun's JVM but was causing a weird NPE on IBM's Java Runtime Environment (1.6 64bit)

As it turns out, this was already a reported issue in Spring's Jira. Even better - it was already fixed and after updating Spring from 2.5.3 to 2.5.5 everything is running smoothly again.
