Could not reproduce, it seems, that bug occurs from time to time under certain conditions and only several times a day.

The fix of JDK-8025588 must be backported to the nearest 7uX update release. NetBeans users are unable to use JDK 7 since 7u40 on OS-X and only workaround for them is to go back to use 7u25. Duplicate P1 reports are incrementally gathering in NetBeans bug database. A sample of some of the reports for the record is here: https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?bug_id=236101%2C236339%2C236361%2C236639%2C237148%2C237480%2C237483%2C238195%2C238483
