Most of my builds are of the mlvm version of OpenJDK including the one from 2011_01_31:

I also build the plain bsd-port but I haven't been uploading it since Jul 2010.

If you are working with the MLVM build then you should see if the problem happens with my most recent build and if it does report the details on the mlvm list:

Alternatively you could build the latest bsd-port and see if the same problem occurs.

One final option is to use one of Henri Gomez's macosx-port builds the packages as disk images and makes available here: -- the macosx-port build follows the bsd-port build quite closely.
