        Description

        ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
        Pure Java bug - any instance of JDK 10.0.1

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The method javax.swing.border.TitledBorder.installPropertyChangeListeners() makes an anonymous listener object with a weak reference to TitledBorder. However, this logic is flawed as the listener object contains a hard reference (this$0) to the TitledBorder object, so the TitledBorder instance is never freed.

        I actually see leaks in my application due to this. Screenshot: https://botcompany.de/1004590/raw/1101318
