VeirfyError problems solved in jacoco?

We have had the error described in http://forums.gradle.org/gradle/topics/jacoco_plugin_fails_with_verifyerror and have successfully used the workaround.

Does anyone know if this issue has now been solved in jacoco itself or via the gradle plugin, so we can remove all

test {
        jvmArgs '-XX:-UseSplitVerifier'
    }

sections from our build.gradle files?

Tested with Gradle 2.1 and its updated jacoco version, but sadly the problem still exists when instrumenting Groovy-compiled code
