This could very well be related to 8054717.

It's strange that it picks up ECPublicKeyImpl from the boostrap JDK though. We changed the build so that the bootclasspath is empty when compiling the JDK.

What's the easiest way for me to reproduce this? Could I get a JPRT id and download your files somehow? (Sorry, I'm still learning JPRT.)
