 From a quick check, there aren't a huge number of tests using these 
APIs so it might be possible to identify a few suspects. There are at 
least some tests that don't close when they fail so maybe there is a 
cascading impact. Another point is that some of the groups for tired 
testing may be running the jdk_net and jdk_nio tests in the same run, we 
might not see this with jdk_net runs.
