I believe that is the theory. So you probably did hit on at least an edge case which the jdk didn't handle as well as you'd hope - if not a actual jdk bug.

I don't think I said anything about it being your code. Although I would say it's possible it's your code. I usually tend to suspect mine first in these situations. Probably doing something strange to hit a jdk edge case.
