I see 7173460 was created to track the G1 issue but it was fixed some 
time ago. Perhaps there is another (or new) failure mode now.

G1 aside, is the failure in 7067973 still relevant? If not then perhaps 
we should close that bug and as part of your changes then you could 
remove it from the ProblemList file.
