      Description

        this test abridged from node's test/pummel/test-https-large-response.js -

        var body = '';
        print('build body...');
        for (var i = 0; i < 1024 * 1024; i++) {
          body += 'hello world\n';
        }
        print('done\n');

        with jdk8u20, this test case takes 1.5s, with jdk9 (1.9.0-internal-akhil_2014_06_27_09_52-b00), takes more than several minutes and has to be killed. I suspect exponential behavior in string concat.
