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).
