Hi Max.

Thanks for thinking of OpenJDK 6 as one release to port your fixes :-)

This fix sounds okay, but please post the webrev for review.

Since OpenJDK 6 should have inherited the fix for 6543940 from JDK 7, 
this regression would appear to affect OpenJDK 6 too.

Please post the webrevs for this fixes.

As Andrew has already commented on to the list, the general policy 
(http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk6/) for OpenJDK 6 includes "As a 
general guideline, if a change is applicable to both JDK 7 and OpenJDK 
6, the change should be made in JDK 7 no later than the change is made 
in OpenJDK 6" so I trust you will also be making arrangements to get 
these fixes into JDK 7.
