I seem to have lost my ability to run tests successfully directly on 
WindowsXP. Even a clean check-out of the trunk head, without my 
experimental changes, gets errors.

Meanwhile, I ran some tests under Ubuntu, and one qa.run test got a 
NullPointerException in com/sun/jini/test/spec/eventmailbox/EMSRIFT_PULL2.td

A re-run of the qa.run test that first got the failure did not repeat 
it. I have started repeatedly running the one test, and got one more 
failure out of 568 runs, so far. I am continuing the repeated run to get 
a more statistically significant estimate of the failure rate.

This is obviously going to be difficult to debug, or even to know if we 
have fixed it after a change. The bug may have existed for a long time.
