        Description

        During the test of applets on the new macOS 10.12 Sierra, customer have
        discovered that the JVM continuously throw a NullPointerException (see the
        attached screenshot).
         
        They have seen the problem both 8u10 and the upcoming 8u111 b10 and 8u112
        b04, and the problem could be reproduced on all their own applets as well as
        https://www.java.com/verify, especially when you closed down the applet or
        navigated away from the site in the web browser.

        They could not give a specific flow because the problem is not consistent.

        While the applets still works, the dialogs will be annoying for the end user.

            I have uploaded jre 7 build but unfortunately release number is previous so we will get ssv warning. I have started a new jprt build but it will take time. I will upload that once its done.

            Was consistently failing on my 10.12 ( macOS 10.12 (16A323)) machine with 8u101 and the verify applet. Every reload.

            Now, with same OS, and Nakul's build above 8u112+fix, the issue is no longer appearing in my current testing.

            jdk8u-dev (which has the fix) nightly is started at 12 pm pst. It will take around 5 hrs to complete.

            Once its done bundles can be found at "/net/scanas416.us.oracle.com/export/java_re/build/re3/nightlyws/jdk8u-dev/b02_2016-09-29-1204_7926"
