+             boolean samePackageMember = sameClass || sameTopLevel;

I don't understand this change. If c1==c2 then sameTopLevel is also 
true. So it is always the case that samePackageMember == sameTopLevel 
and so the change has no affect.

!             // allow private lookup on nestmates. Otherwise, privacy 
is strictly enforced
!             if (c1 != c2 && ((m2 & PRIVATE) == 0 || c1.getNestHost() 
!= c2.getNestHost())) {
!                 m1 &= ~PRIVATE;
!             }

Ah! I tried this but didn't check the access was actually private! No 
wonder it failed. :)

This can be simplified using !c1.isNestmateOf(c2)
