      Description

      ###@###.### 2001-08-23
      Submitted on behalf of IBM. While they agree that the behaviour
      described in Bug #4197876 is not a bug, they would like it
      documented and have suggested that the following be added to the
      J2SE API documentation for the Thread class:

      When a thread is created it is automatically added to a thread group.
      This allows threads to be run at a later stage without the need to
      explicitly store a reference to them. Due to this a thread will not
      be garbage collected until its run() method has been executed."

      The owner of this API, Josh Bloch, agrees with this approach.
