Yes, there is an issue here. The issue is that link-time plugin that 
generates the code for reconstituting module descriptors doesn't 
currently handle the case where the module that doesn't have a 
ConcealedPackages attribute. There is a TODO in the code and this issue 
will sort itself out in time.

In the mean-time then you can workaround it by packaging the modules 
with the jar or jmod tools and put the packaged modules on the module 
path. These tools adds the ConcealedPackages attribute and avoids the 
jlink plugin issue.
