        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.8.0_91"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode)

        Java Web Start 11.91.2.14

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The system property 'user.dir' which previously resolved to the user's working directory is now resolving to the 'java.home' value when a JNLP application is launched using java web start packaged in Java 8 u91 on Windows.

        This does not appear to be broken in the OS X version.

        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u77

        ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
        java version "1.8.0_77"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_77-b03)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.77-b03, mixed mode)

        Java Web Start 11.77.2.03

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Run any JNLP app with the Java Webstart console displayed. Press 's' to print the system properties.

        With Java Web Start 11.77.2.03 or previous the user's working directory is shown. For Java Web Start 11.91.2.14 the java.home directory is shown.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Expect 'user.dir' to show the user's working directory
