I did verify this. Setting my system javac to ecj/gcj causes the same
failure. You need to set your system javac to IcedTea.
On Fedora you can use this command "sudo alternatives --config javac"if
you have the rpm installed. Otherwise, you will firs need to add the old
IcedTea as an alternative using the --install option.
