Sorry if that sounds a bit dumb, how can I access
I rewrote the native method a bit (because I thought it was messy), so
I am afraid I destoyed some cases - are there also correctness

I am no expert, but doesn't each jni-function block the jvm, like a
synchronized modifier in java? I thought for this are
I can be wrong of course, its just a guess.
