Unfortunately, although 1.15b undoubtedly fixes lots of VerifyErrors,
there's one biggie that it doesn't fix, which is VerifyErrors with
- a private constructor, or
- a constructor that calls this()
on any non-static inner class. That bug is still outstanding and you can
find it in the Jikes bug tracking system. I can't understand how jikes
1.15 ever got released, personally - and why this remaining huge problem
hasn't been rush-fixed and had a 1.16 put out urgently.
