Most of the failed tests for me is in sun/security/tools, where  
there's no port number problem. In these tests, I normally run keytool/ 
javac/jar/jarsigner multiple times, and generate keystore, java, jar  
files. I assume all these are done inside a single directory.

Is it possible that these tests may run parallel? Then I may need to  
use different file names for all of them.
