>                 Key: HARMONY-6277
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6277
>             Project: Harmony
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Classlib
>    Affects Versions: 5.0M10
>         Environment: SVN Revision: 794879
>            Reporter: Jesse Wilson
>            Assignee: Nathan Beyer
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 5.0M11
>         Attachments: Timer_newFinalizer.patch
>   Original Estimate: 0.5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0.5h
> The following call creates a Timer with no associated thread:
>   new Timer(null, true);
> When that timer is finalized, it's finalization helper object fails with a NullPointerException,
because there's no Thread assigned to impl.
> The attached patch only initializes the finalization helper if the thread is created
successfully. Unfortunately I couldn't come up with a reasonable test case for this. In Android,
exceptions that occur during finalization result in stacktraces in the system log, which is
how I detected this problem.
