I mentioned the JDK version as Sun's java version "1.4.2_02"
before showing the test results.
As for the correctness of the mauve testcase I made, I am
confident of it.
And my opinions on the discussed issue are:
1. Should the mauve test conform to Sun's implementation
even if it seems incorrect?
2. Should GNU Classpath (or other implementations) simulate
Sun's implementation even if it seems incorrect?
Yes, if it is necesary.
These derives from Dalibor's saying in an article of Kaffe mailing list:

Respect latest JDK API specs where you can,
and do as Sun does where you must ;)
And in the case of 12 AM/PM issue, I do not think we should
simulate Sun's bug.
