      Description

        Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.6.0-ea-b46)

      Bug Description:
        Regression: Uncaught Exception Handling is no longer working

        In 1.5 the code below would display:
        Unhandled Exception due to Thread[AWT-EventQueue-0,6,main] throwing
        java.lang.RuntimeException: Test Exception
        **************** start stack trace *****************
        **************** end of stack trace ****************
        java.lang.ThreadGroup[name=main,maxpri=10]
          Thread[AWT-Shutdown,5,main]
          Thread[AWT-Windows,6,main]
          Thread[AWT-EventQueue-0,6,main]
          Thread[DestroyJavaVM,5,main]

        In 1.6 this is no longer working which makes it very difficult to track
        down Sun Bugs.
        Instead strange things just start going wrong everywhere.

      Steps to Reproduce (be specific):
        run the following code:

      import javax.swing.*;

      public class Test {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
          Thread.setDefaultUncaughtExceptionHandler(new
      Thread.UncaughtExceptionHandler() {
            public void uncaughtException(Thread t, Throwable e) {
              System.out.println("Unhandled Exception due to " + t + "
      throwing " + e);
              System.out.println("**************** start stack trace
      *****************");
              e.printStackTrace();
              System.out.println("**************** end of stack trace
      ****************");
              t.getThreadGroup().list();
            }
          });
          SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
              throw new RuntimeException("Test Exception");
            }
          });
        }
      }
