This is not the first time we are discovering problems in the zip
implementation... even if the kaffe implementation is faster (according
to Dalibor).

Dalibor was working on this issue sometimes ago, but there is a lot of
work to do and it seems not to be that easy to switch to zip
implementation of classpath.

Cheers and Merry Chrismas to every one,
