Nice work... That makes things work, here.

I ran a bunch of non-graphical apps with both JDK-1.1.5 ports
for Linux with no problem.

Here's the question I have now... Is this version of
Kaffe supposed to work with JFC 1.01?  i.e. Swing 1.0?
I have trouble tracking what is supposed to work at any given
time - never enough coffee :-)

Anyway I tried a simple Swing app with both jdk's, and got the
following.  Anyone running Swing?
