[concurrency-interest] Difficulty interpreting jcstress results

I'm getting an odd result:

FloatBufferAtomicityTests$FloatTest           	ERROR 	Error running the test

But when I open the test

Observed state 	Occurrence 	Expectation 	Interpretation 	Refs
[-1] 	0 	ACCEPTABLE 	Seeing the complete update. 	
[0] 	484 	ACCEPTABLE 	Seeing the default value, this is valid under race. 	
[-1082130432] 	456 	KNOWN_ACCEPTABLE 	All other cases are unexpected, but legal

So, if it's legal, why is there an error?

Andrew.
