But if OutOfMemoryException is thrown in more threads in the second
thread exception cannot be allocated. Is solution preallocate
OutOfMemoryException per thread? Probably not - when I catch
OutOfMemoryException and in my action another OutOfMemoryException is
thrown (is it posible?) JVM must allocate new OutOfMemoryException...

Maybe that is imposible - I don't know kaffe inside enough.
