I haven't seen any change-sets from folks in those areas adding or removing tests from the problem list so it's possible that they aren't using the make file to run the tests.
Not sure they run these tests much from the Makefile. Originally I had to corral them off because they belonged to a set of tests
that only worked with a DISPLAY setup on Solaris/Linux, and they seemed to poison the DISPLAY with strange settings.
That's when I created a unique VNC display on the JPRT driver machine for each user job in JPRT, starting the DISPLAY
fresh each time and killing it off when the job was done, so the poisoning was contained and didn't impact other user jobs.
Last time I ran them, they seemed to run ok. (and jdk_misc has some tests that need a DISPLAY too I think).
We should probably warn Amy (QE) about these tests. :^(
