Sure, fixed, thanks

Yep, fixed as you suggested. My original though is that the stack trace maybe too verbose if most of runs hit NamingException, leave it to stderr may make the log more readable, but yes, the exception is expected and not considered as error as you commented. Anyway, we could adjust it later if necessary.

>> This test used dummy ldap server to simulate the scenario to send “Notice of Disconnection” after binding, it will repeat InitialDirContext() for 1000 times (normally the NPE bug should be hit less than 100 times run, but just in case), test failed with NPE if without JDK-8205330 fix change and passed after the fix.
