      Description

      Eliminating the "duplicate state" variable Thread.started creates the scenario in which an OOM from the VM thrown out by Thread.start followed by invoking start a second time can result in duplicate Thread references being present in ThreadGroup (e.g. making ThreadGroup.activeCount return a too-high value).
