[RT-33954] static block...causes IllegalStateException - re-open?

Firstly, I agree - this does seem to still be reproducible despite 
Kevin's comment that it should have been resolved in JavaFX 8.0 due to 
RT-28754 <https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-28754>, so that is 
troubling. I'll leave Kevin to comment on that.

Secondly, RT-33954 was closed as a duplicate of RT-28754 
<https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-28754>, so it would be better 
to leave RT-33954 closed and move discussion (including what you 
recently posted) into RT-28754 
<https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-28754>. The discussion can 
start in there and most probably a new bug will need to be opened (as 
RT-28754 <https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-28754> did result in a 
code change that at one point appears to have fixed the problem, so 
we're possibly dealing with a regression).

Thirdly, whether this is a suitable bug for someone learning the ropes 
is debatable. I'll leave Kevin to offer his thoughts, but perhaps you 
can propose a patch that resolves this issue for you in your test 
scenarios. Also, a good starting point is to develop a simple test 
application that helps to demonstrate this issue (preferably the test 
case is a single class with no dependencies), and which you can then 
share in the jira issue via copy/paste into a comment.

Fourthly, to be a contributor in the OpenJDK requires you to follow a 
process to get the paperwork in order. It is wise to get that started as 
soon as possible, as it can sometimes take a while. Here's a link to the 
process: http://openjdk.java.net/contribute/ The main thing is the OCA.

Finally, welcome! :-)
