This is Harmony-1933
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1933> issue

Pavel, test java.lang.ObjectTest fails very seldom. I checked it on Win
XP, ia32, interpreter, release configuration. It didn't fail yesterday
25 October, but it failed 24 October (vm revision: 467401 classlib
revision: 467390) and about a week ago, so it's unstable.
