Why does MATLAB R2013b, R2014a crash when using Mac OS X?

13 views (last 30 days)
MATLAB R2013b and R2014a have been crashing frequently when used in Mac OS X for various reasons:
a) Sometimes it happens when plugging/unplugging external monitors or displays
b) Sometimes it happens after the computer wakes from or the screen saves goes off.
At times I noticed the crash would not happen right away after any of the above events, but would happen a little after when I would open a new figure, execute code, etc.
The crash produces the following log:

Why does this happen?

This is unexpected behavior in the releases since MATLAB R2013b.  The cause of this issue is a bug in the Java shipped within these releases for the Mac OS X platform.  The above work-flows cause MATLAB to crash generating a crash log that contains a line with the following:
If the crash log does contain this line, see the External Bug Report for more up-to-date information as well as a workaround:
