It seems the merlin API spec for class Thread is incomplete.
"The Java Virtual Machine continues to execute threads until either
of the following occurs:
The exit method of class Runtime has been called and the security
manager has permitted the exit operation to take place.
All threads that are not daemon threads have died, either by
returning from the call to the run method or by throwing
an exception that propagates beyond the run method."
But there is no mention about non-daemon threads which are not started.
They have not died as described in spec but java terminates its execution.
Does this contradict to the spec?
I think this issue should be clarified in the spec.
