Description
This is an assert that was added recently as part of 6948538.
It seems to occur more readily with iCMS, much less readily with CMS.
It is likely that it's just that the new assertion checking is
uncovering an existing bug that was not uncovered prior to
the additional assertion checking.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Newly added assert uncovered existing issue. Under investigation.

Would be good to take a look at this for hs25. If we can fix the root cause we can comment in the assert that was commented out by JDK-6978533.

Deferring this from hs25. Don't think we will have time to investigate this issue.
