Umm. No. I can't think why we'd say that. Would seem there are two possibilities:

1) IBM JDK has more strict validation and we should fix our source (I'm not sure if Shawn
and Janet are using Sun or IBM JDK), or
2) There's a compiler bug

Google 'inconvertible types' and you'll get a number of hits for compiler bugs in this area.
Your IBM JDK is nearly a year old. I'd guess there's a decent chance that upgrading would
fix your problem.
