Issue Description
JDK-8290832

Restoring Previous `user.dir` Property Behaviour


A change, JDK-8194154, was introduced in the 8u342 release of OpenJDK, causing the JDK to ignore attempts to set the user.dir property. While this change is suitable for a major release (it was originally introduced in the initial release of OpenJDK 11), changing the behaviour of such a property in an update release creates compatibility issues in software that relies on the behaviour in prior versions of OpenJDK 8. As a result, we have reverted this change in 8u345.
