I am not aware of any such sites. Discovered by accident when making a test case for another bug.

How does this patch help?

It looks to me like if i == length then the for loop won't do anything, the while loop won't do anything, and the following if statement will return "" anyway. So this patch would have no effect.

In this case, the if statement doesn't return "": (!builderIndex && stringBuilder[builderIndex] == ' ') is false when stringBuilder[0] equals '\n', for example.

I'm convinced this is correct. Let me note in passing that I'm unhappy with the structure and readability of the function.

It took me a really long time studying the code to understand why it's OK to look at stringBuilder[builderIndex] when builderIndex is 0, even though that's "off the end of the array".
