No type checking of GIDs in stubs classes #258
[reported by blelbach] [Trac time Tue Nov 8 18:14:28 2011] One of our common use patterns is to use the prefix/locality GID to remotely access the runtime support services of a locality. We do this by calling into the runtime support stub class directly. Unfortunately, no type checking is performed here. If the gid passed in does not point to a runtime support component, the component is accessed anyways. This is very bad as it can lead to data corruption!
