That issue is seen with 64 bit Server JVM, Linux RedHat 5, Windows 2003, Windows Vista.
The JDK used is 7 b29 from /net/bonsai.sfbay/w/builds/jdk/7/pit/b29/bundles that comes with hs_13, b01.
Typical failure output is:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  Internal Error (type.cpp:763), pid=15656, tid=1089530176
#  Error: ShouldNotReachHere()
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (13.0-b01 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# An error report file with more information is saved as:

EVALUATION Several xmeet routines are missing entries for NarrowOop.

EVALUATION Forgot to say a JDK 7 b29 with hs 12 allowed to get all tests green on Linux RH 5. Probably enough to say the issue comes with hs 13 b01.

WORK AROUND As per Katya's recommendation, run with with -XX:-UseCompressedOops.
