    Description

      On Solaris there exists a user compatibility library /usr/lib/lib0@0.so.1
      which can be preloaded. See the linker documentation for more info:
      http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-0210/6m6nb7md6?a=view
      When LD_PRELOADing this library by mistake, the JVM will quickly
      crash at various locations. Very easy to reproduce. Try e.g the SwingSet2
      demo

      This bugreport is supposed mainly for documentation purposes.
      I understand that there will be no plans to ever fix this.
