Hi Bengt,

The test looks good, but summary needs to be updated.

   28  * @summary Verify that the heap gets set up to the expected size

 From this summary it's not clear, that the test is for the minimal supported Xmx value.

Would it make more tests to for minimal heap size?
- setting -Xmx from 1024k to 2047k is equivalent to setting 2m.
- vm doesn't start if Xmx1023k and less
