Thanks for the patch.  I committed a fix based on your idea on r113192.
The problem is most likely that a Remove is being done in a Forall loop
during cleanup which is invalidating the arraylist underneath it.

The iteration definitely needs to be robust enough to continue across
such operations, so a clone of the list was needed.

Thanks again,
