Many thanks for exploring the reason of the bug. :) I am modifying the 
tests to sort the classes before running the test. However while 
comparing kaffe's output to sun's jdk I got some annoying differences in 
the way some exception are thrown. So these tests will remain as broken 
while someone fixes it (I'll try to do it...)
