Note that I suppose that argv.length is less than 10. This way Class1
and Class3 is never seen on runtime and not initialized.

And yes, all JDK I have (1.1.3, 1.1.6,1.2b3, and Linux 1.1.5) pass this
test. Only symcjit compiler for 1.1.3 fails it (but I think it is
corrected in never jit versions).
