Re: TextMessage.getText returning null

Ahh, I bet that is a result of using the VM transport.  The broker is
likely doing the "beforeMarshal()" call that clears the text just before
the client is calling "getText()" on the same message - or just before
"copy()" is called to make a copy of the message.

Yeah, looking at the code carefully - the storeContent() method is handling
"text != null" with "content = null" by converting text to a byte sequence (
org.apache.activemq.util.ByteSequence) and stuffing that into "content".

If all this happens concurrent with a copy() or a call to getText(), then
it's entirely possible to get this race condition.  So, disabling
"concurrent store and dispatch" could solve this problem.  Also, using
critical sections in "storeContentAndClear()" as well as "getText()" might
eliminate the race condition.

With all that said, I don't see the big win of clearing the text field in

@Chris - can you try the patch here and see if it eliminates the problem?

I may have missed some paths that access both "text" and "content", but I
think I got the important ones.  If that patch works, that increases
confidence that you found the right race condition.
