Problems with BigDecimal

     Hi All.
     I wrote a simple test class which uses BigDecimal.class but it didn't work
properly under kaffe but worked properly with jdk. My test class is following:

     import java.math.*;

     public class Test
          public static void main (String[] args)
               BigDecimal bd1=new BigDecimal((double)0);
               System.out.println("bd befor = "+bd1.toString());
               bd1=bd1.add(new BigDecimal((double)10));
               System.out.println("bd+10 = "+bd1.toString());
               bd1=bd1.multiply(new BigDecimal((double)10));
               System.out.println("bd*10 = "+bd1.toString());
               bd1=bd1.subtract(new BigDecimal((double)11));
               System.out.println("bd-11 = "+bd1.toString());
               bd1=bd1.divide(new BigDecimal((double)10),0);
               System.out.println("bd/10 = "+bd1.toString());

     When I run it I don't see any correct result. Has anyone ideas why it
didn't work?

     Regards, Sergey
