As per your recommendation I have done the following changes:
1. Moved the fix to BasicMenuUI.
2. Corrected the test to:
a. Access the UI elements only in the EDT.
b. Made sure that the main thread doesn't exit till the test is complete.
Here is the updated webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~kaddepalli/8178430/webrev02/
However, I was wondering, why it is good to fix in BasicMenuUI? Also, while writing the testcase, I couldnot find any functionality like "flush" on the event queue, which will execute all the pending events. Is it by design?

A few notes:
- Looks like the bug can be reproduced in JMenu only? Then it will be good to fix it in BasicMenuUI, moreover it is already implemented a
getMaximumSize() in a similar way as in your fix.
- In the test some of the Swing components are accessed on non-EDT thread. Also note that when you start the Thread you will exit
invokeAndWait() and it is possible that the test will end before the Thread complete(jtreg will kill the test when the main thread is completed)
