The changes to test/java/io/Serializable/resolveClass/* looks fine for me.

On then I wonder if the headless check should be 
in TraceJFrame instead. I suspect this because JFrameCreateTime is the 
"target app" that is traced. Either way, I'm curious why Throwable is 
caught I looked at GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment() and 
isHeadlessInstance() and neither is specified to throw anything, I'm 
just curious what we are catching and recovering from, an Error perhaps?
