Hi Edouard,

Thanks a lot for the reply. I tried both 1.4F and 1.4F-egp1 but still having
the same problem.

Sorry I can't send you a sample code since it's a big project with lots of
files. I tried to come up with s simpler example but kjc WORKS with my
simple example code.

I did notice that with my big project (lots of files), kjc crashes when one
(or several ) of the files has "while(true)" or "break" code, if I change
"while(true)" to "while(flag_variable)" and set flag_variable to true, then
kjc doesn't throw exceptions.

Could you send me result of

$ kjc -version

And a small part of your both sources A.java and B.java that throw this
internal error.

Note that kjc release contains in Kaffe-1.0.6 is broken (kjc-1.4F).
You could use kjc.jar (kjc-1.4F-egp1) from latest CVS Tree or from
http://egp.free.fr/kaffe.  There are snapshot of KOPI CVS Tree with
minor fixes.

Note also that I'm currently testing alpha release of kjc-1.5 from KOPI
CVS Tree with Thomas Graf, upstream author.
