I'm not very sure why the issue was closed but it is closed "incomplete" 
is usually a way of saying "need more information".

I've looked over the threads and I don't see a good explanation of the 
cause of the issue

I read on the jetbrains tracker that you wrote

unusual approach that is used in the OpenJDK source code. >It's quite

What unusual approach .. to doing what .. ?

Also it seems that Denis Fokin says he could not reproduce it with 
Russian layout.
