everything's working fine here, too ;)

However, I've got two small issues:

Shouldn't the other methods of ClassLoader (like
getPackage, getResource) also delegate to the
PrimordialClassLoader if parent is null (seems
to be what jdk does)? Could commit a patch if
you agree.

I again tried running eclipse with Kaffe. Now
it fails and complains about being unable to
find java/lang/Object. Eclipse basically uses
just an URLClassLoader (parent is null). Debug
output shows that the loadClass method of that
URLClassLoader is correctly called for java/lang/Object
but returns null. Since this definitely worked
before, I wonder if you have an idea of what
could be going wrong here?
