I support renaming too. Using the initial integration bug id for a test is likely to become confusing and less relevant over time (e.g. as new issues are added to the test itself).

The test name is important as it flows through the whole test process and when i see “…/invoke/T8139885.java failed” i don’t know really known what that means. If i saw “…/invoke/TryFinallyCombinatorTest.java failed” then i would have more of a clue :-)

My suggestion, as a follow on issue, is to split the test out into separate areas of high-level functionality and each test named according to that functionality.
