>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.5.0-beta-1
>            Reporter: Joel Bredeson
>            Assignee: John Wagenleitner
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 2.5.0-beta-2
>         Attachments: GroovyClassLoaderDeadlock.txt
> The GroovyClassLoader.clearCache() method can deadlock when another thread is 
> creating a new instance of a class. The clearCache() method locks the 
> classCache, then when removing the class, through the InvokerHelper, locks 
> the ClassInfo object. When a new instance is created that instance can lock 
> the ClassInfo object first, then later request the lock for the classCache 
> (This happens when requesting the entry getClassCacheEntry). If the timing 
> between the two threads is unlucky a deadlock can occur. 
> Relevant stack trace attached.
> Groovy: 2.4.10 groovy-all-2.4.10-indy.jar
> Java: JRE 8u73_64
