Multiple instances of Kaffe

Is it possible we could run multiple instances of Kaffe on the same Java
program?  The reason I ask is because
we have an embedded app with two screens (for two users).  We may need to
run multiple copies of
a browser, one for each user, or possibly multiple copies of other programs.

I tried running Kaffe twice on the same .class file, and while this
sometimes works, it also sometimes
crashes with a NullPointerException on one of the instances.   What's the
problem here?  Is Kaffe
not reenterent?  I would think at least some of it would be in order to
support multiple threads
in a single app.

I attempted this on Windows NT, with Kaffe compiled with Cygnus Solutions'
cygwin32.  I tried running
Kaffe both in one bash shell (with one in the background) and two bash
