Java 7 and Lucene Bug Saga Still Ongoing

I took some free time on the Lucene Eurocon Conference in Barcelona, downloaded the packages and installed them in parallel on my Windows 64bit Thinkpad. First I tried to run the Porter Stemmer test with 100 iterations on Java 7 GA, and verified that it crashed. Robert Muir joined and we tested the new U1 release: Test passes! This means, Hotspot issue #7070134 was fixed, but Oracle missed to put it into the release notes...
It seemed to us that Oracle maybe fixed Java issues #7044738 and #7068051, but missed to put both of them into the release notes. Of course, without an additional statement from Oracle, we cannot be sure, that the issues are really fixed! --Uwe Schindler
So while there was a lot of developers here on JL and in other places who brushed aside Uwe's warning, I still am wondering whether anyone in our community can say that they've held off on Java 7 because of these Lucene-related bugs? Have any Lucene application developers not updated?
