Hi Dan,

this new bug, 6599351, seems to be about the same issue, isn't it?
It should be fixed in several releases, as I understand.

Now let's decide: if you will create a patch for your bug then I'll not 
work on my,  otherwise I'll start but not very fast, either. Anyway, 
after your patch is ready for jdk7, I can port it to earlier non-open releases
where applicable. 
Oleg or/and I, we can help when necessary and review your code.
