Hello Mike,

Signing the OCA does not give you access to JBS to create a bug report. 
You have to contribute at least two fixes to OpenJDK or OpenJFX for that 
matter before you can become an Author [1] and get access to JBS.

You can report a bug using

I assume you ran the search in JBS as suggested in the comment on Stack 
Overflow and didn't find a similar issue reported.

Since you already signed the OCA, you can fix the problem and create a 
Pull Request. See OpenJDK Developers’ Guide <>.

I can't say whether the problem you describe is a bug or not. Engineers 
at openjfx-dev at could be a better fit for that.

If you think this is a bug, please report it along with a test case and 
it will be routed to the correct team.
