Well, logically, I think it doesn't make sense to call an unmarshaller with a null InputStream.  Having fixed what I think should be considered a bug, I think rolling back the fix would amount to building in special treatment for a particular case (SOAP unmarshaller).  On the other hand, by eliminating a call to the unmarshaller, I have changed the behavior of Remoting in an SP release, something I try to avoid.  So I think I'll reopen the case and add a parameter, say "unmarshalnullstream", such that HttpClientInvoker defaults to the original behavior which can be changed to the new behavior by setting "unmarshalnullstream=true".

If you use the SOAP unmarshaller in both (one way / two way) cases, then I assume this change would fix your problem.  

I was going to release a version 2.5.0.SP1 today, but I'll hold off briefly while we resolve this problem.  I'll attach another jboss-remoting.jar to JBREM-1046.

I'd say it was a partial diagnosis, treated with a partial cure, rather than a misdiagnosis.  Anyway, np, it's all good.
