This looks to me like a duplicate of 7003327: Correct test awt/FontClass/CreateFont/DeleteFont
which despite its synopsis is really not a bug in the test at all, rather a change in behaviour
of the VM under bug :
6938627: Make temporary directory use property java.io.tmpdir when specified
which is being undone/revertd under bug ID 
7009828: Fix for 6938627 breaks visualvm monitoring when -Djava.io.tmpdir is defined

It started failing in 6u23 because the new hotspot was integrated there.
Maybe best to close it out as a dup of that one (7009828) as that's the
fix that will resolve this failure.

If the issue is justified as expectable and awating a particular fix delivery, would be it make sense to update the actual test promoted with the "ignore" tag in the test code headlines for the next build. And keep it until the actual fix be integrated. The test inself is a target of this CR also to make a related CR shown automacally in QARE in any repeated occurance.
