The latter two are for friday, and should not be a big deal. With 
testdrive up again, I'll be able to check how well it all still works on 
the various boxes there.

In other good news, current CVS head can build again on Cygwin, as 
described in the FAQ.win32. I've been playing around with the 
interpreter on jthreads, and currently it is getting stuck pretty early 
in loading classes when it tries to execute a soft_lookupinterface and 
ends up with a ClassLoader instance where there should be a WeakHashMap, 
leading to a SIGSEGV/NPE. But it's building, now also with 
--enable-debug, so that nothing stands between windows developers and a 
fixed Kaffe on Windows, I hope ;)
