Can you try jdk8-b73 in your environment without the app bundle change
and see if you still have an issue? Brent pushed a change to b73 that
defaults the value of sun.jnu.encoding to UTF-8 on Mac and we think this
should the issues that several folks on this list have reported. There
are several other changes in this general area so rnning with the latest
jdk8 build means a build with all the changes. I know Brent is planning
on getting wider feedback from folks that are willing to try out jdk8
builds. We need this before backports to jdk7u can be considered.
