If you call addShutdownHook after shutdown has already started, you should get IllegalStateException, as specified. If the call to addShutdownHook is the first one in this JDK, you will get an ExceptionInInitializerError instead, as below:

	at java.lang.Runtime.addShutdownHook(Runtime.java:209)

EVALUATION Changeset: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/tl/jdk/rev/164ce9ff8b58

EVALUATION Approved for M3.

EVALUATION http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mchung/6829503/webrev.01 request for M3 approval to fix a regression.

EVALUATION A regression caused by the fix for 6810254. ApplicationShutdownHooks.<clinit> may fail to add the shutdown hook if shutdown is in progress. Need to handle this exception case.
