I can reproduce this by compiling that method alone using 8u31. Seems to be a javac type inference bug, because changing



    Collectors.<T, I, T>toMap

solves the issue. (It seems to have been fixed in 8u40.)

What's the approperiate procedure here? Should I submit a patch that adds the type arguments to avoid forcing people to update their boot jdks?
