I'm talking about the jdk7/jdk7 forest. That's going to get locked down
soon and only critical changes will be allowed in. I honestly do not
know any of the details as to how this will happen but I don't think
it's unreasonable to limit the number of changes when nearing the end.
It would be nice if test-only changes could be exempt from red tape but
I just don't know at this point. This shouldn't stop us reviewing the
change of course and I'm happy to run it on Windows for you. I also need
to create a bug for this as I don't think we have one already (FWIW,
this test seems to have been added in 1998 and has been largely
untouched since then).
