After having some problems with this patch, we think there might be a 
better solution for this problem.  The issue seems to lie more with the 
usage of the program counter to determine whether something is JNI or 
not.  Since the JNI functions only have one exception handler per stack 
frame you only have to store a pointer to the stack frame.  This is in 
contrast to exception handling in java where you need the pc and stack 
frame because the try block doesn't have to cover the entire frame.  
Anyways, i made the change to the janosvm and it seems to work.
