I don't think applies here, but I have seen Clirr failures in the past
that went away when the code was compiled with a different compiler.

The failure occurred for me when code compiled by Eclipse was being
checked (as can happen if using Eclipse to develop).
Using mvn clean before running clirr fixed the issue.
[It was a while ago; I think that was the the way it happened, rather
than the reverse]

See also the issue I raised a year ago:

It would be good if someone in Maven-land could take a look; fixing
the array bug should be trivial for someone that is familiar with
building Maven plugins.
