My fault.  Kaffe compiles fine but gives me the results mentioned
-- either hogging up CPU or segfaulting -- when i try to compile
even simple java programs.

As i said the previous snapshot ran fine when compiled with egcs
so i got confused about the new results.  I am more into C/C++
but i will try to make a fix for it -- be patient.
