      Description

      When using "EEE" or "MMM" components in a date formatting string, SimpleDateFormat will add a "." for some locales - reproducibly so for Locale.GERMANY and Locale.FRANCE, but not for others.

      See attached jshell transcript for details: UK and US locales are fine, German and French versions have the extra ".".

      I reproduced this on JDK 11 RC1 on macOS.
