NullPointerExceptions while invoking JFileChooser. 

Some problematic code in JDK and within current versions of OpenJDK. 
Class Win32ShellFolderManager2, lines 140 etc. There the underlying exception 
is silently ignored. This "ignore me" leads to the problem that it is 
impossible to analyze the original reason. 
Fix request (8u). Requesting for parity with 8u241. Passed jtreg Tier1 and Tier2. No regressions found. Patch applies cleanly except for imports

Fix request: Backport to 11u is requested because it is a part of 11.0.6-oracle. Patch applies cleanly to 11u. No regressions (tested with JCK).
