I found a problem which seems to have something to do with

The attached program never stops when run under certain conditions.
The common thing among such abnormal cases is that kaffe.io.ByteToCharIconv
must be used to convert the bytes into characters.

I am sorry I am sending big test data,  but this problem deeply
depends on the data and it is not easy to make the test data compact.

$ cat Test.java
import java.io.*;
public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            char[] buf = new char[16384];
            Reader rdr = new InputStreamReader(
                new FileInputStream(args[0]), args[1]);
        catch (Exception e) {
$ java Test test1-EUC EUC_JP
$ java Test test1-UTF8 UTF8
$ java Test test1-SJIS SHIFT_JIS
$ java Test test1-ISO-2022-JP ISO-2022-JP
