After reading this thread I think you are right and it is ok to generate 
private attribute for inner classes.

There is another difference between compilers output. Sun compiler and ECJ 
generate different class names for Test1931_2.java inner class. Sun compiler 
creates Test1931_2$1LocalClass.class while ECJ creates 

It might be not the cause of the bug in this case, but I wonder whether naming 
of inner classes is specified somewhere. Shouldn't names be the same for all
