NPE on HistoricVariableInstanceQuery

Description

Setting and removing an execution variable of type serializable causes a NPE when a HistoricVariableInstanceQuery is executed.
In fact, when the variable is removed, the related row in ACT_GE_BYTEARRAY table has a null value in the BYTES_ column; this causes the error below:
