Just to mention that the highly problematic listener methods were 
removed early in JDK 9 so the debeaning and the escaping of dollars in 
this part of the build no longer exists. Just mentioning it as I suspect 
the changes in 9 aren't going to transport completely, starting with the 
Erik's patch that you attached is probably a better start.
