Something sneakier is happening. Months ago when the first jigsaw EA
came out, I hit this same problem, and just like now, could not
reproduce it standalone.

Here is what the lucene test is doing: http://pastebin.com/5YUhjiAa

So Thai works in standalone, but sometimes fails in our tests? Maybe
something else like a compiler issue or depending on other stuff the
JVM has done. I played with it this morning in various ways but cannot
make a simple standalone test that fails!
