Could you send the complete stackTrace of the exception ?

You could also export KAFFE_DEBUG=gdb before start your IDE and inspect
java and C stack trace with ``jitwhere'' and ``findNativeMethod'' from
developers/gdbinit.  You may re configure with --enable-debug before.

To load GDB user functions in GDB use ``source path-to-gdbinit'' or create
a ``.gdbinit'' file.

Hope this help
