No, the bug is in jikes. Jikes 1.15 is completely broken, jikes 1.15b
fixes some of the errors but leaves in at least one major one:
VerifyErrors on any constructor of a non-static inner class that is
either non-public or calls this(). I've also heard bad things about
jikes 1.14, but didn't hit any of those personally.

I recommend requiring specifically jikes 1.13 until 1.16 comes out.
