For Volker's benefit, othervm is where jtreg spins up a new VM for each 
test, agentvm is where jtreg re-uses the VM if possible. There are tests 
that don't or can't clean up and those tests need to ensure that their 
@run tests have the /othervm option so that the tests runs in its own 
VM. Alternatively, the TEST.ROOT file has a key that lists directories 
where all the tests in those directory trees must run in their own VM.

Balchandra - one thing that be useful is to look at the client tests to 
see what can run in agentvm and what can't. For the jdk_core and jdk_svc 
tests then they can be run in either (although we're still picking off 
issues as they found in agentvm mode). I'm not aware of any work done 
yet on getting the tests in the jdk_desktop test group to run in agentvm 
mode. It may be that TEST.ROOT needs to be updated to see a few 
additional top-level directories so that all the tests in these areas 
temporarily run in othervm mode.
