Thank you for fixing that, it is a lot better. However, I still get two 
errors: when I instally
 jython kaffe crashes just before the end of the installation with an 
assertion failed on
 jthread_disable_stop (but _this_ is maybe an old issue), and 
WidgetsDemo gives NullPointerException
 in graDrawScaledImage (apparently the exception is raised in 
initScaledImage). I still don't
 know if it is linked to the introduction of JVMPI but it was working 
just before when I
commit the patch for the JPEG loader.
