It was. It turns out that GNU Classpath has a bug that prevents any
events from being shown. I'll file your test case in the Classpath bug
tracker and CC: you on it. Once that regression is resolved, we can see
if the event passing bug on ppc-linux still exists.

There will be a rc2 today or in worst case tomorrow. I am going through
the bug reports and fixing a few of the remaining build issues.

After a rc2, we'll spend a week waiting for the debian buildds to catch
up and expose any major issues, and see if we get bug reports about
problems that were overseen. As usual between Kaffe releases, a lot has
changed in the past 6 months ;)
