This is a tricky piece of code with loops, thread comparison checks,
a volatile variable, synchronized blocks with monitors and I don't
find it easy to review without a better understanding of all of
how all of these parts are used here.

thread is assigned on creation and we are checking it in run() so
(thread == curThread) seems like it must be true until somehow
implClose() is called :

1300             Thread oldThread = thread;
1301             thread = null;
1302             doIO = false;
1303             if (oldThread != null) {

So why not just check if (thread == null) instead ?

And when can oldThread will be null ? If someone called stop twice ?

And why is there no thread = null assignment in implClose() ?

Shouldn't you update the test to add this new bug id ?
