Java binaries from this summer loops on current


I've run into what appears to be a lack of backwards compatibility in i386 
NetBSD current.

I periodically update my Java binaries (from wip/jdk16) using an older version 
of the package to bootstrap the build.  When I attempted this yesterday, I 
found that java, javac, and probably other programs in the java suite would 
eat CPU until interrupted -- apparently looping.  ktrace shows no system 

I bootstrapped wip/jdk16 using the Linux sun-jdk binaries and found that the 
problem is with the jre/lib/i386/client/ shared library file.  If I 
substitute the new version of this file, the old programs work normally.  (The 
newly bootstrapped programs work as expected.)

The old version was compiled under NetBSD/i386 4.99.70 on 28 July 2008 and the 
new one with 5.99.4 this morning.

Since I have native Java working, I'm not sure if this is worth investigating 
further.  On the other hand, since it may indicate a backwards compatibility 
issue, I thought I should report it.
