Please review a fix for
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.
