	The Java written browser, running under kaffe, could be a more
	interesting thing for us, because its not crippled by the N$
	licence. I've tried some test of integrating perl/tk and kaffe,
	to use tk as awt and the ptk web browser as a starting point.
	But I never found the time to go deeper. What we now have is
	a running kaffe+biss, coding a browser in java is imho more
	promising, running the appletviewer or hotjava with biss
	currently has the problem I can reproduce with a much smaller
	program :

import java.awt.*;

public class AwtHello
	public static void main (String args[]) {
		Frame f = new Frame("Hello");
		TextField t = new TextField ("Salut c'est Claude.");
	 	*/ ();

	If I remove the comments, an ArrayStoreException will be raised
	by java/util/Vector.addElement. The same is with the appletviewer.
	Perhaps this helps. (btw Kaffe0.92+Biss0.94+Linux1.2.13/Aout, never
	touch a running system ;-)
