Hello all. There is a bug filed on Red Hat bugzilla:

To quote from the bug report:

> To reproduce download the code from, then run "./gradlew build". JVM crashes will occur during the test.
> As noted on the github page, adding -XX:-LoopUnswitching stops the problem occurring.

It seems to affect both OpenJDK & Oracle's JDK. Does anyone know of the 
status of this bug ? Has anything been filed ?

Best regards,
