I just built the daily snapshot from yesterday successfully, and
ran into a few problems, some of which might be known:

The InternHog test failed:
Failed at 24473: java.lang.NullPointerException
        at java/lang/String.intern(516)
        at InternHog.main(9)

The UncaughtException test filed (and caused kaffe to dump core):
Success 1.
Success 3.
It's not ThreadDeath, and there's no exception handler.
 This is something I cannot handle.

And unfortunately, the UDPTest hangs in exactly the same way as in 1.0b3.
It was just stopped for over an hour this time before I control-C'ed out
of it.  I believe things are OK with the DNS setup on my Sun; an nslookup
of returned the name localhost, and a ping of localhost tells me
it's alive.

I have a Linux box I can try this all out on, and I may just for fun, but since
my end task was to try to get some java tools running on a SunOS box I can
telnet to, I will probably go back and rethink how I can achieve the primary
goal.  Thanks to all!
