      Description

      (bug detected in Jini 2.1, still present in 2.1.2+ trunk)

      If a net.jini.discovery.DiscoveryListener implementation throws an unchecked exception, then the LookupLocatorDiscovery$Notifier thread and/or the LookupDiscovery$Notifier thread will exit prematurely. In practice, this can prevent the JoinManager$DiscMgrListener or ServiceDiscoveryManager$DiscMgrListener callbacks from being invoked, resulting in incomplete state for a registrar.

      A soon-to-be attached patch surrounds each listener invocation with a try/catch block.
