This one is a little stranger, taking out some System class initialization code that seems to be obsoleted but originally was sort of a hack to prevent inlining. Upstream accepted this, but nobody is completely certain about it. I'd still like to see this get exposure for testing purposes sooner rather than later, by adding it to IcedTea6. OK to push?
Only just saw this after you pointed it out on IRC... guess that's
what you get for posting on a Friday evening :P
I think it would be good to get this into 1.9. Just a couple of niggles:
* Can you include the exact changeset for the patch? The version here
seems to be missing the header generated by hg import. Did it not
* Please update NEWS too; I spent far too much time updating it for
these last few releases, so let's try and do it as we go along this
The bug should also be set to fixed with a target version of 1.9 and a
link to the changeset.
