There is some confusion because some versions of Sun's contain
a method System.initializeSystemClass that the VM must call on startup,
but some other versions don't have this method.  There was a patch posted
to the list about a week ago that fixes this--I think you should be able
to find it in the mailing list archive.

Hope this helps...
