      Description

      After discussion with Gilad Bracha on spec bug 4642762, he has expressed
      his intent to support the jikes/jacks interpretation of this issue.
      A break does not exit the labelled statement if an intervening finally
      clause cannot complete normally. The following code fragment is required
      to be an error.

              int i;
              a: try {
                  break a;
              } finally {
                  return;
              }
              i = 12; // reachable?
