Patch: Code and Test


If called with an odd number of arguments, array-map does not throw an exception until the map is realized, when it throws the confusing ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

Example, in 1.5.1 and 1.6.0-alpha3:

user=> (def m (array-map :a 1 :b))

user=> (prn m)
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException 3

PersistentArrayMap.createAsIfByAssoc could check length is even to catch this

A better error message would be nice... this is the best I could think of.
