Patch: Fix error notice when calling Object::addStaticVars

I get the following error when adding a new item to the main Admin Menu with my module:

"Notice: Undefined index: LeftAndMain in /var/www/silverstripe/sapphire/core/Object.php on line 241"

This patch fixes the error by only merging the array of extraStatics[$class] if it is not empty:

Note: I'm not really sure what's going on here, except that this fixes the error without breaking things (that I know of), so you should double-check to make sure this patch makes sense. ;)

Here is the code I used for my new 'listings' module with this in listings/_config.php

global $project;
$project = 'listings';
Object::addStaticVars('LeftAndMain', array(
'extra_menu_items' => array(
      'MyCustomInterface' => 'admin/listings/',
Director::addRules(100, array(
   'admin/listings/$Action/$ID/$OtherID' => 'Listings',

Hope this helps,

Hi Andy,

I've just updated to sapphire/trunk SVN revision 36273 and it doesn't seem that this patch has been applied.

Has it been applied somewhere else?
