Thanks for your patch.

It seems the string hash method has changed in newer versions of the JDK
because the one we still implement in Kaffe is apparently poor.

See http://developer.javasoft.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4045622.html
(needs login)
(Section Runtime Incompatibilities in Version 1.2, Subsection 3.)

If somebody wants to send a patch that implements the new version,
that would be great.
