Yes, it would have been nice if we could find the test. Unfortunately 
the original bug report was on old Apache Bugzilla that was retired a 
long time ago. I couldn't find any more information than I posted in 
JDK-8058175. It may be possible to create a new test, but since the 
patch has been in Apache over 10 years, plus as Martin said, it's been 
used at Google, I took the liberty to trust that the patch is fine so we 
didn't have to spend more time on a quite fix like this.

I took Martin's patch to run existing SQE and Unit tests, they did all pass.
