Well it depends on the bug purpose.
(1)If the goal is to fix the Introspector.getPropertyDescriptors()
overloaded setters, then the test is OK, but I don't agree with the
(2)If the goal is to have Class.getMethods() stably returning the same
order of methods regardless of JVM or the machine it runs, then the test
is not OK, but the solution is good. (In my understanding of cause)
From the bug description and the test I thought that the purpose is (1).
