thanks, very good catch! I'll check in your fix. 

I've tested kaffe with, and without your patch. Without your patch it crashes
during make dist. With the patch, all regression tests pass (when kjc ist ran
with -noverify), and make dist works like a charm. 

There is a tiny difference in generated bytecode of Rectangle2D, but it's
nothing for concern. Only a few parameters for the generated constructor of
Rectangle2D$1 are swapped.
