SUGGESTED FIX

In the event that this bug fix is backported to 5uXX or 1.4.2_XX,
please make sure to include the changes in CR 6782457 as well
so as to avoid a regression. See 6782457 for further details.

WORK AROUND

Leave more slop in perm gen via -XX:PermSize=... -XX:MaxPermSize=...
and keep JNI critical sections short/bounded.

SUGGESTED FIX

As in synopsis.

EVALUATION

The submitter is correct. Fix under construction. Will be available
for backport as needed basis given that there's a reasonable workaround
and the problem has never been reported from the field as far as we are aware.
