This is the right place, welcome! 

First we should probably establish if you are a contributer or not. Your 
mail hints that you are in IBM but it's impossible to verify from the 
mail address.

I haven't looked at your patch in detail yet but I suspect there may be 
similar issues in other places (like j.u.Hashtable) once you are done 
with Vector.
