I'd recommend giving jikes 1.19 a go. I've had lots of propblems with
jikes releases between 1.13 and 1.18 for building the class library, or
with our test suite.

Could you try to create some short example that triggers the bug? Our
kaffe-extras build of kaffe-1.1.4+ant-1.6.1+patched-kjc-2.1B uses jikes
1.19, afaik, without problems.

Yes, kaffe's kjc is dms' kjc 2.1B with a few patches. The patches are
http://www.kaffe.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/kaffe-extras/patches/ . They
are mostly local bugfixes that haven't made it upstream (yet), but may
not be as well tested as dms' source code.
