JDK bug in PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices

I have reported the second bug in Sun's JDK-1.5 this year: PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices is not thread-safe on Linux! Most of the time it crashes the VM in an OpenSSL call race and sometimes it just hangs the threads. Workaround: synchronize the call and turn off automatic polling by setting the system property sun.java2d.print.polling=false. Bug report at Sun.

Stack of hanging threads:

You can easily verify this with the following test case:
import javax.print.DocFlavor;
import javax.print.PrintService;
import javax.print.PrintServiceLookup;
