Hi Alexander(s),

I have some problems not with this change but
with the routine itself.

As I understand, this change is automatically generated.
The generator script is imperfect. For instance,
it cannot catch dependencies in places like
where tests depend on reflection to call certain internal methods.
Now, if I add the @modules line myself, manually,
it will be removed on the next run of the script.

How do you suppose to remedy that?

Same thing, sun/awt/datatransfer/DataFlavorComparatorTest.java issue.
Correct modules should be
      @modules java.datatransfer/sun.datatransfer
You don't have that second line. OK, that's because jdeps
for some reason didn't catch that. Why, all programs have bugs,
and this one will be eventually fixed. But until then,
how can I fix the test? You'll break my fix again --
or every time someone should invest certain amount of manual labor.
Tonight I'm afraid that's you.
