With this fix we resolve an issue originally described in 7162144 by 
properly handling thread interruption requests. We no longer override 
the Thread.interrupt() for the EDT, and hence don't clash with NetBeans 
using thread interruption for its own purposes.

Note that there's still not a regression test since NetBeans' test is 
very heavy (over 100MB) and impractical for our purposes. However, the 
NetBeans team has tested a developer build with this fix and found no 

PS. We aren't yet sure if we want the same fix for JDK 8, hence we fix 
it for 7u8 first.
