It means what it says, namely that an attempt was made to reenter the 
verifier.  The verifier is a piece of single-threaded, non-reentrant

If the failure is reproducible, you could build a staticlib/intrp
version of kaffe and use gdb to produce a stacktrace.  This should
give you some information what sequence of events led to this.
For instance, it could be that an exception is thrown while a
method was verified.  The exception class is loaded, its methods
are verified, and voila.  Obviously, this is wrong.  We need to think 
about it some more.
