I understand what you're saying, but I'm not sure how keeping 8043951 
open will help given this is an infrastructure issue.  Once disabled, we 
will never know really when it's fixed from a product standpoint.

If we want the bug in the ProblemList to remain open, I would say 
putting the infrastructure bug number INTJDK-7613285 would be best.
