Yes - this is NOT A BUG this is the spec for this class:

"Optionally, a PrintStream can be created so as to flush automatically; 
this means that the flush method is automatically invoked after a byte 
array is written, one of the println methods is invoked, or a newline 
character or byte ('\n') is written. "

This bug report should be closed as "not an issue".
