Serious bug: "finally" block is run whenever "continue" is reached

Thank you. I think this is a good workaround, because it lets us keep 
the try/finally semantics while continuing to function the same in the 
future, when the bug is fixed.

I'll insist that I think you absolutely must make this bug very public 
and prominent, so that all those who download JDK 8 are aware of it. I 
know it won't feel good to admit it publicly, but it is your 
responsibility to users and in the long run will help build trust and 
encourage adoption.
