For completeness, you might want to link this bug to bug id 6360946 "(coll) SetFromMap.equals should perform identity check".  Most of the wrapper classes were fixed to include an identity check for that bug.  Digging up some old messages from December 2005, the synchXXX wrappers were not updated because we were only trying to fix the reflexive test for equals method in the face of concurrent modification.  For the synchXXX wrappers it doesn't apply but, we missed the need for it when used in methods like remove.

> That said, an equals method that checks for o==this is pretty normal 
> (and recommended by Effective Java Item 7) and we at least now have 
> consistency amongst the wrapper classes. I'll add a note to the CR to 
> that effect.
