The issue arises with tests that have both JNI_OnLoad and JNI_OnLoad_libname functions defined, and code attempts to load the library more than once. In that scenario then both functions are called.
> Staffan Larsen did the hard work in JDK-8031968 where he observed that dlopen(NULL, RTLD_LAZY) behaves differently on OS X and that we should be using dlopen(NULL, RTLD_FIRST) to get the handle of the main program. Staffan has fixed this in the hotspot repository for JVM TI agent libraries, we need to do the same in the libjava code used by ClassLoader's native methods.

IIUC from reading the docs:



     discovered during the call to dlopen().  If neither RTLD_LAZY nor RTLD_NOW is specified, the default is RTLD_LAZY.


     RTLD_FIRST   The retuned handle is tagged so that any dlsym() calls on the handle will only search the image specified, and not
                  subsequent images.  If path is NULL and the option RTLD_FIRST is used, the handle returned will only search the main

So more precisely that is "RTLD_LAZY | RTLD_FIRST" ?
