I got it working (more or less, there are some little issues that I have
to look into) with kaffe. But not with the kaffe package from Debian.

The Debian kaffe package is compiled with unix-jthreads, but gtk
(java-gnome) needs pthread support. When you recompile kaffe configured
--with-threads=unix-pthreads then you can play with bugwatcher like you
can with gij. (Thread system unix-pthread is also needed to run e.g.
Eclipse with swt/gtk bindings).

What do the kaffe developers think. Should kaffe default to pthreads on
systems that support it?
