Every call results in the getInboundMessageTransport() returning a null value, which obviously causes the getPeerAddress() call to fail. Other calls to methods contained within the requestContext succeed (example, the getEntityId() call works fine).

I don't know why it's null, but you should of course be aware that that kind of thing only works for front-channel, any queries would just return the SP's address.
