<AWT Dev> Why was JDK-8188085 closed? (non-English Java apps broken on High Sierra, menubar missing)

Hey guys,

please forgive me for posting here—I’m aware this might be the wrong place. However it has to do with the UI, so I guess there is no better place...

I've just noticed that https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8188085 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8188085> was closed yesterday (no idea by whom) without having been fixed. 

Just to be clear—this is not about cosmetics or some rarely encountered issue with an easy workaround. This is a *crippling* bug that breaks properly packaged Swing apps on High Sierra that do not use English as their UI language. I’m aware that this *may* not be a JDK bug, but an OS bug. 

But I’m wondering: Has this been moved somewhere else? What’s the resolution? Why was this bug closed?
