i today switched to latest master jgit and egit, and i now have a very well reproducible (occurring every time i switch to the history view now) null pointer exception. the .log contains:

seems that for _some_ reason the walker is null in that case... i saw that the method is resetting that field, and immediately thought of multi-threading, so i added a synchronized to all methods of RevCommitList that set the walker. this may not be "the" fix, but it works better now (i saw no more NPEs). if this indeed is a valid fix (i doubt that ;)), tell me and i push it.
