      Problem submitted by ###@###.### :

      nsk/regression/b4287029 is failing for long time already.
      It fails since the small stack size is specified -Xss64k.
      The tests passed with -Xss128k.
      I think the test should be modified for 64-bits VM.

      We have two problems from hotspot side here:
      1) There is no documetation saying minimal stack size for different platforms (32/64 bit)
      2) java launcher or hotspot itself should provide error messages for very small values of Xss specified.

      PS Using 64k of stack for startup just 13 methods is rather expensive. Maybe we can decrease this value?
      PPS Is value of Xss been used for internal VM threads(like GC, finilizer, compiler)?
