+ *   at com.google.inject.TypeLiteral.<init>(TypeLiteral.java:79)
+ *
+ * However, as one would expect with thread safety problems in reflection, these
+ * are very hard to reproduce.  This very test has never been observed to fail,
+ * but a similar test has been observed to fail about once in 2000 executions
+ * (about once every 6 CPU-hours), in jdk7 only.  It appears to be fixed in jdk8+ by:
+ *
+ * 8016236: Class.getGenericInterfaces performance improvement.
