Normally, the bug in the comment above a problem list entry is the bug 
that remains open and still needs to be fixed for the problem entry to 
be removed, and you open a separate bug to add the entry to the problem 
list. So you should open a new bug (ex: add 
sun/security/pkcs11/MessageDigest/TestCloning.java to ProblemList) and 
leave 8043951 open.
