        Description

        JTreg test java/util/Currency/PropertiesTest has been trolling us for years. This test never fails itself, but causes other tests (notably ValidateISO4217) to fail by transiently modifying the test JDK, which NO TEST SHOULD EVER DO.
        If the test JDK is a production JDK in use and happens to be writable, it may make permanently break the JDK if the test is interrupted. Yikes!
