Here is the entry from my nightly analysis report:

New nsk.jdb failures (from 2008.02.16)
        This test failed due to "Exception in thread "event-handler"
        java.lang.NullPointerException" on Linux IA32 Client VM
        (machine circuslv). This error message was found in the
        jdb.stderr file. The test's .log file makes this failure look
        like a timeout.

Here is a link to the test's run directory:


Here is the contents of the jdb.stderr file:

Exception in thread "event-handler" java.lang.NullPointerException
	at com.sun.tools.example.debug.tty.TTY.printCurrentLocation(TTY.java:203)
	at com.sun.tools.example.debug.tty.TTY.vmInterrupted(TTY.java:180)
	at com.sun.tools.example.debug.tty.EventHandler.run(EventHandler.java:77)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:674)

Not sure if this test was somehow quarantined but at least it is not present in the ProblemsList.txt.

Jerry, Are you going to fix this in 11 or better move it to 12 or tbd_major? Should this bug have the svc_test_stabilization label?

This is not on our list of current priorities. If this changes, please reopen this issue.
