Null Pointer Dereference Rule is strange

At the following code snippet Null Pointer Dereference Rule points to the line with exception throw. It looks inconsistent with rule description.

Code: Select all
public class RunTest {

    * @param args
   public static void main(String[] args) {

    * @return
   public static int doSome() {
      throw new IllegalArgumentException("Some"); //Null Pointer Dereference

You're right. The rule is reporting a false positive at this point. We'll have a fix for this in the next build.
