CR 6437701 is fixed for JDK7, but still occurs with JDK6:

On Windows when TMP variable is set to nonexistent directory, NullPointerException is thrown:

> set TMP=n:\nonexistent
> jps

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

EVALUATION Closing as duplicate of 6437701 after consulting with submitter.

EVALUATION I'm confused. This bug recognizes the fact that this problem is fixed in JDK7 by 6437701 so why wasn't a subCR of that bug opened instead of a new bug? I'll check with the submitter.
