Using java.io.File.deleteOnExit() and System.runFinalizersOnExit(true) in the same application
causes crash on exit.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: HARMONY-248
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-248
     Project: Harmony
        Type: Bug
  Components: Classlib  
 Environment: WinXP
    Reporter: George Harley


The dreaded sequel to HARMONY-222. While the one line fix for that prevents the test suite
bringing about a rather undignified exit to the VM it doesn't really address the bigger picture
of how to cope with user code that marks files as delete-on-exit and also makes use of the
System.runFinalizersOnExit() method. Of course the latter method is deprecated but it won't
stop some people from adopting it in their code. 

I will attach a test case for dropping into tests/api/java/io/FileTest.java together with
some minor tweaks to the build.xml and hyproperties.xml files in modules/luni/make/common
that will enable this new test to run. A new support class will also be needed to help run
part of the test in a separate VM.

My suggested fix for this is an update to one class in icu4jni-3.4.jar. I *think* that we
are OK customising that jar for Harmony. 

Best regards, 
George
