When I first looked at this I expected it to be a test only bug. I was just initially surprised to see that it was actually a product bug.  I guess I think the synopsis should read something like “Fix JISAutoDetect charset”, or something, rather than specifically mentioning a jdk regression test.  Given both Sherman’s and your comments, this is not worth debating.
