Greetings. I've discovered what appears to be a bug in the Solaris
2.5.1 implementation of Kaffe 0.9.0. The following code snippet is
from a much large application; running this class results in a

Mr. Peabody: javac -g Schtum.java
Mr. Peabody: Kaffe Schtum
        at Schtum.<init>(12)
        at Schtum.main(5)

I haven't yet tried this code on Linux.

****** cut here **********

public class Schtum {
    public static void main(String argv[])
        new Schtum();

    public Schtum()
        Class formals[] = new Class[2];

        try {
            formals[0] = Class.forName("java.lang.String");
        } catch (ClassNotFoundException exc) {

******* cut here ***********

This code runs correctly with Sun's VM, on both Solaris 2.5.1 and
Linux 2.0.30. Your help is appreciated.
