OK, thank you for confirming.

Hmm... I switched out my open jdk for Oracle 1.8.0_121, and I'm still  not able to replicate this.

What specific version/build of Java are you using?

I modified the first two unit tests that were causing problems.  Give those a try.

Can you give the full stacktrace for the third problem?
