java.util.logging.Logger.kidsarray may grow to contain tens, if not hundreds of thousands of
JDK versions under suspicion: 1.6.0_15, 1.6.0_18 to 1.6.0_20.
This may happen even if your application never explicitly uses the
java.util.loggingframework at all - third party libraries that you are using might.
UPDATE: This has been observed before.
UPDATE: Doesn't seem to be present in JDK 1.6.0_17.

PS: It is appalling to see Java core code not using generics two versions after they have been introduced.
