The interpreter seems to have a problem with catch ranges.  See:
(and some of the eariler mails).  If you could try the fix in that
patch and see if it improves the interpreter, that would be great.

I haven't checked that change in yet, because I still don't understand
why things ever worked...

If you can run the 'developers/FullTest.sh' script on your tree, that
would be great.  (It might not work if you're cross compiling
or don't have a big pile of disk space, though.)

I think Kevin's changes should go in.

     To understand recursion one must first understand recursion.
