        Description


        See bug 4462056 regarding JNI Specification problems with weak refs.

        It is currently possible to pass a deleted weak reference as an
        argument, resulting in the access of a private object internal to
        hotspot (call a sentinel). A more appropriate action is desirable,
        including a fatal error.

        Passing weak refs to most JNI functions should be illegal, and in any
        case, is a bad idea. See comments.
