A few comments on problem list membership:

 366 # Need to be marked othervm, or changed to be samevm safe
 367 java/lang/annotation/                  

This test uses a security manager.

499 # Problems with rounding add failures on solaris-sparcv9 and -server
500 java/math/BigDecimal/ solaris-sparcv9

If this test is failing on a particular platform, that is indicative of 
a HotSpot bug on that platform.

502 # Problems on windows with samevm, missing inputstream close()?
503 # Also times out on solaris-sparcv9 -server
504 java/math/BigInteger/ generic-all

Some uses of input/output are not guarded by the try-finally {close 
resource} structure. I've filed 6908541 "Bad resource management in 
java/math/BigInteger/" for this.

506 # Should be samevm? But seems problematic with samevm on windows
507 java/math/BigInteger/

 From a quick look, the test uses some security infrastructure, but 
there is nothing that would seem problematic for samevm operation.
