ReferenceType.visibleMethods() has some problems with diamond shaped interface hierarchies. There is more information on the problem in the bug report. 

The solution here is to maintain a list of interfaces that we have visited so that we do not visit interfaces (above the top of the diamond) more than once.

This change is targeted for jdk9 so I will hold on to it until the repos open up.
