Local fix

Problem summary

  • As zoneStrings pointed to the entry value in cache for both
    DateFormatSymbols objects, they are common for multiple threads
    and there is a possibility for inconsistency while duplicating
    the data.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    5.0.0 SR11 FP2
    1.4.2 SR13 FP13
    .
    The JVM is updated to create a copy of zoneStrings object for
    each DateFormatSymbols to make zoneStrings thread safe.
    .
    To obtain the fix:
    Install build 20100408 or later
