Well ...since it has been working in 2.1 it cannot
be *that* bad. But things are quite different with
the javaflow in 2.2

This is most likely because you are going the "2.1 way"
of using javaflow.

Javaflow can now be used in two different ways - well
to be exact three different ways.

The old synchronous way where the rewriting is done inside
the classloader. And now there is the asynchronous one where
you point your javaflow to monitor your classes or your sources
directory. I am not yet sure which way we should settle on.
This depends a bit on the development vs deployment factor.

In 2.1 a marker interface has been used to mark a class
to be rewritten. This is gone in 2.2 for a couple of reasons.
That's why your "suspend" inside the flow is being ignored.

So either you use the asynchronous way (which I would
recommend) or we have to add some configuration code to
the classloader. I already prepared that with my last
javaflow commit over at jakarta.
