      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :

      The default proxy selector field in java.net.ProxySelector is
      essentially a global variable with no thread safety measures taken to
      ensure that accesses are valid. Anecdotally, a symptom of this bug
      *may* be that the field appears `null` after assignment (based on an
      IRC discussion with a confused user).
