Yes. I'm happy to try and produce a patch if there's no-one else working
on this issue. My employer's product will soon be directly affected by
the problem so I'm very motivated to see it solved as soon as possible.

This would be my first contribution to Java/OpenJDK and therefore I may
not progress as quickly as others who are already involved. Is it true
that new contributors are assigned a mentor to assist a little?

Hello 2d-dev, is there anyone aware of/working on this problem already?

I have now opened a bug which has been assigned an id. It's not yet
visible in the external database but here's the link anyway:
