This is related to a bug I filed back in October, JDK-8211959 [1], in 
which JLI_Launch is failing for the same reason. The fix to 
java_md_macosx.m is the same one I identified in that bug. You might 
consider adding a test that calls JLI_Launch, but either way, 
JDK-8211959 can be closed as a duplicate of JDK-8213362.
