#1148 NPE while looking for license file

Michael Kay

Under some configurations (specifically, this happened trying to invoke Saxon from Jython) a NullPointerException can occur while Saxon is looking for the license file. A patch to module Verifier is being placed in the (Saxonica) repository.

    Another problem has been reported in the same code, and a further patch is being committed. The symptoms are almost identical (but the NPE occurs on the line after the previous one, Verifier#119 instead of Verifier#118). In this case the user was running Query from the command line, nothing very unusual about the circumstances except perhaps that Saxon and the license file were under c:\Program Files, which might suggest a permissions issue.
