Ok, that's an issue.

We wanted to get out the release as fast as possible. This issue can be
postponed and addressed later IMO.

The long time itself is not an issue, nothing has changed on the source code
since the latest RC except the headers. The commits I did recently don't fix the
issue (not buildable with JDK 1.3 due to 1.4 compiled dependencies), but only
show the issue at a different during a build. This itself does not warrant a new
RC IMO, but as the headers do so, it will be included in that RC as well.
