    Description

      Follow up from GROOVY-7370. Consider the following:

      class C {
        C(String... args) {
          strings = args
        }
        public String[] strings
      }
      def x = new C(null) { }
      assert x.strings == null
      def y = new String[0]
      def z = new C( y ) { }
      assert z.strings.length == 0
      

      7370 handles no arguments for array and more than one. Passing null is supposed to set the array to null, not pass an array with one null element. Passing an array through an untyped variable is also a problem.
