      Description

      javac used to allow expressions of the form

      o += s

      where o is a variable of type Object and s is an expression of type String.
      We fixed that recently (4642850) and this caused a build failure (4741702).
      Perhaps this is common enough that we should relax the spec instead of
      fixing the compiler?
