Description Jonathan Pryor 2012-05-30 15:22:56 UTC
If an API description has a method declaration such as:

> <method abstract="false" deprecated="not deprecated" final="false" name="dump" native="false" return="java.util.List&lt;java.util.Map&lt;java.lang.String, java.lang.Object&gt;&gt;" static="false" synchronized="false" visibility="public">
> </method>

`generator` will crash when generating the source:

> Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Cannot be negative.
