Bug #21207 Connector/J debug version; (3.1.12) crashes and (3.1.13) does not log

When I debug my code I need to trace the connector/J 3.1.12: so I used the debug connector/J 3.1.12 version with DEBUG level in log4j.properties; when it arrives to a preparedStatement, it crashes (if I use a higher level, it does not crash).

I upgraded to 3.1.13 (DEBUG level) and I noted that it does not crash, but the log trace (DEBUG) is reduced. 

I would have the same verbose log of 3.1.12 version, but without crashes.

The crash succeeds in the method asSql(boolean), because the parameters array is null (I used a preparedStatement without parameter) and the index is 1; when it arrives to array[1] --> Nullpointer.exception. When I have a higher debug level the asSql(boolean) method is not invoked.

Roberto thanks for your problem report.

Looks like the bugfix we used doesn't work for the case of prepared statement with no parameters. Basically, we check if parameters are null which means statement is closed, and eligible for GC as far as the driver's concerned, but client my still have access to it.
I don't know what you mean by "log trace (DEBUG) is reduced." though.
We were unable to reproduce crash with 3.1.12 so I would have to ask you to provide full stack trace, and your log.

Four log files of versions 3.1.12 and 3.1.13, in debug and error level log.

I uploaded a zip archive with four log files. There are the 2 files for version 3.1.12 (free crash the error level and debug level with crash), and the other 2 for version 3.1.13, both without crashes, although the log seems the same.
