Based on Alan Bateman's feedback for my fix for a similar problem seen
in java.util.Hashtable
I've revised the changeset once again to use diamond operators in the
testcases, and to their main methods throw Exceptions directly (rather

Also based on Dalibor Topic's suggestion

Please review this modified changeset, and let me know if anything
further is required for its acceptance.
