I know that one very well from different architectures, e.g. Alpha.
Patching the MIN/MAX values does not fix this bug, because the
represented floating point values keep the same, but just helps ECJ to
actually being able to compile the source files.
Getting this exception normally means there is somewhere a bug in the
floating point code, as these values are corner cases. But sometimes,
as in my Alpha situation, the bug is not in the VM but in the Linux
kernel and I can't fix it :-(
