OK. Thanks to great support from Dalibor and Guilhem, I could finally build
Nice from source using Kaffe again and run our testsuite on it. This gives me
reasonable confidence that the workaround for this bug does not cause serious
problems. It's slightly inconvenient, but if you prefer fixing it after 1.1.5,
that's OK.
