  i compiled Kaffe 1.02.b2 from source on my Debian/GNU Linux 2.0 (Hamm)
with egcs (). However, 'make test' fails with the following error message:

		InvTarExcTest ... error running
		  Should have got:
		Caught itexception: null
				at InvTarExcTest.main(13)
		Target is: throwing inner exception
		  But got instead:
		Caught throwable: java.lang.Exception: throwing inner exception
		java.lang.Exception: throwing inner exception
				at java/lang/Throwable.<init>(30)
				at java/lang/Exception.<init>(21)
				at InvTarExcTest.f(6)
				at InvTarExcTest.main(13)
		This should not happen.
		CLTest ... passed

  Also the appletviewer is unusable. It fails with a bunch of the following
error messages at startup:

				at java/io/StreamTokenizer.nextTokenType(101)
				at java/io/StreamTokenizer.nextToken(73)
				at kaffe/applet/AppletViewer.<init>(74)
				at kaffe/applet/AppletViewer.main(269)

  Can someone please give me a hint on how to fix that? 

  Thx in advance.
