It still fails as before. However, I noticed current Kaffe in CVS (as of
today) builds fine and regression testsuite reports that 25 of 131 tests
failed. Since GC tests work, I don't think the remaining bugs are due to 
a possible mishandling of IA-64 register stack (in jthread.c, see BSP 

BTW, under which circumstances could the following happen?
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: TestSerialPersistent
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:149)
        at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:74)
        at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:43)
Caused by: <null cause>
(that occurred e.g. for ttest test, but hand compiling with kjc and rerun 
it succeeded)

1.0.7 regression testsuite fails in a lot of places similarly to
error compiling:
Internal error: caught an unexpected exception.
Please check your CLASSPATH and your installation.
TestScript: line 1:  2183 Aborted

-d . ./InternHog.java
FAIL: InternHog.java

Was the main change of 1.0.7 -> 1.1 concerned javac?
