Java SIGSEGV with extemely simple Swing test

openjdk-7 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Java crashes when trying to launch this very simple test. The crash is probably somehow related to hardware. OpenJDK 6 will also crash, and Oracle Java 7 also crashes. Apparently also Oracle Java in Windows crashes. However JRockit java on Ubuntu does not crash, but runs perfectly. Clearly this is fixable in software, even if probably the fault is related to unusual hardware.

This is 100% repeatable on the test hardware. Please do let me know what kind of information is needed to debug this.

Test class:

import javax.swing.*;
public class Test {
 public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
  JFrame frame = new JFrame();

lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
Release: 12.04
