Hi Vladimir,

The changes look good.

I think (?) that the original failure happened only on machines with 
small amount of memory so default heap size is small. To ensure that 
this scenario is always tested, in SelfChangedCDS.java, maybe add a new 
test case that specifically uses a small heap during both dump time and 
run time, so CDS will use 0 shift?
