The 'kic' ping is not being sent by the 'java kernel', after jre installation is complete.
Not sure when exactly it's broken, but tested with b08 & b09.

EVALUATION The problem was that the 'kernel complete' ping was not sent in most of the cases. Couple of issues: 1. Sometimes regutils.dll is not found by LoadLibrary. - Fix is to pass the full path 2. The process is exiting, before new created thread is finished posting the ping. - Fix : Start the thread little early, before calling JQS & CDS methods : Wait maximum of 1 min for ping thread to complete before returning from preJVMStart(). This is after JQS & CDS methods finished.
