      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      I found out that the compiler crashes only in the test classes, especially in the LazySeqReduceTest and this test can be cut down to the following class:

      public class LazySeqReduceTest extends AbstractBaseTestCase {

      @Test
      public void test() throws Exception {
      final LazySeq<String> empty = LazySeq.empty();
      final int totalSum = empty.reduce(0, (acc, i) -> acc + i.length());
      }

      }


      Thus, seemingly the new javac does not like the reduce method of LazySeq, but I have no idea why.
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Go back to JDK 1.8.0_11.
