review thread on core-libs : 


this one concerns me somewhat. It looks like a possible behavioural 
change (albeit very unlikely) for JDK 8u as per bug comments and review 
thread. I know you're between a rock and a hard place on this one. JDK 8 
FCS is the right place to fix this. Is JDK 8 release team totally 
against taking this fix ?
