This bug has come to my attention:

Basically there is a reproducible (by several people) situation where a 
new int array is not zeroed.  The author reports the error is 
reproducible on HotSpot 64-bit server VM, Java version from 1.7.0_04 to 
1.7.0_10 on Gentoo Linux, Debian Linux (both kernel 3.0 version) and 
MacOS Lion.  (Not tested on 32-bit or Windows.)

Reportedly bug7196857 has been filed with Oracle.
