	There’s no real guarantee of the order a dev or worse the RE might run the build in, however.
 The current order tests the worst possible case, and as a result discovered these bugs in
the build that have been there for a very long time.  So moving the test to hide bad results
sound counterproductive to me.  (It also might point to potential issues with parallel tests,
but that’s very case-by-case dependent of course.)

	Besides, with JDK8 now being tested against, these are likely the easier problems to fix
given how broken javadoc is… ;)
