Hi Sean,

The present fix solves the test issue which is happening in newer Solaris version viz., 11.3/12 which has FIPS guidelines as a prerequisite. 
With your permission I shall leave the JDK-8074580 (test stabilization issue) in current state, and would like to continue with fix for public exponent issue as reported in JDK-8129560. 
Please let me know.

Thank you,

The problems are different. The PKCS11 error means everything in this case.

The underlying PKCS11 error is different (maybe due to a different Solaris version?), but it looks like an identical stack trace. It would be good to also remove it from the ProblemList and close the other bug if it is a duplicate issue.
