The general position of the Tomcat developers is that we do *not* patch
Tomcat to work around bugs in third party code.

There have been exceptions in the past but - since this JVM bug as a
workaround available - I very much doubt that Tomcat will be patched to
avoid this (even if such a patch was possible which looks unlikely).

A reproducible test case is definitely a good thing but it needs to go
to Oracle, not to the Tomcat devs.

Note we do have some contacts with Oracle we can use to ensure a bug
report gets in front of the right people.
