[aspectc-user] A bug in JoinPoint method generation?

I think I have found a bug in the weaver. I have the following two files:

File main.cpp
template<class TJP> static void no_access(TJP* tjp)
tjp->arg(TJP::ARGS-1); // or tjp->arg(0) or ...

int m1(){return 0;}
void m2(int i){}
int main()
return 0;

File AnAspect.ah
#ifndef ANASPECT_AH_
#define ANASPECT_AH_
aspect AnAspect
advice execution("int m1()" || "void m2(int)") : around()
// tjp->result();
// tjp->arg(JoinPoint::ARGS-1);
#endif /*ANASPECT_AH_*/

Now the compiler tells me the following:


**** Incremental build of configuration Debug for project ContextAccess ****

Build complete for project ContextAccess

Obviously the case is that result() is not generated for the structure 
representating the join point at method m2() and respectively arg() is 
not generated for the structure representating the context of m1(). 
However, if I uncomment the two lines in the advice code, compilation 
goes just fine. I guess that all I'm asking is that whether this is a 
bug or not? If it's not a bug, could someone please elaborate a little 
on what's going on here. Of course, one might ask that why do I need 
methods for getting non-existing result/arguments, but in the document 
"Advances in AOP with AspectC++" it is said that tjp->result() should 
return 0 if the function has no return value (I take "no return value" 
meaning that the function is declared as returning void). Or maybe there 
is something wrong with my code that causes this behaviour?
