      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_10-rc"

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      as my collegue Gal asked in:
      http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=47520&tstart=0

      the problem is that we hook our JVMPI / JVMTI implementation by appending "-Xrunjvmhook -Xbootclasspath/a: ..." to _java_options (JVMPI) or by appending "-agentlib:jvmhook" to java_tool_options (JVMTI).

      this is a backward compatibility issue, as the previous version did consider these environment variables.

      as 'kbr' said in the link above, we are opening a bug for it.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      maybe one can try to connect any other JVMPI / JVMTI implementation.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      the environment variables should be considered.
      ACTUAL -
      the environment variables are not considered.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      Release Regression From : 6
      The above release value was the last known release where this
      bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
