[kaffe] (Maybe Bug Report): kaffe-1.1.5: Garbage collector: threadData.jvmpiData not scanned for pointers

jvmpiSetThreadLocalStorage puts a pointer to local storage instances there:
KTHREAD(get_data)(jt)->jvmpiData = ptr;
but that field:
is not scanned for pointers neither here
which only looks into
nor anywhere else.
the letters "jvmpiData" only occur in 3 places in source distribution:
this looks like a but to me, since if that storage would hold a last pointer to an object,
that object will be reclaimed during garbage collect.
test case for that should be obvious.
I myself is not a java developer, I even have no kaffe binaries, so I can't run it.
In case this is NOT a bug, please provide a short explanation to "how that can work".
