(because they are the same, IIRC)

Yes, I think we should file a bug, but more importantly, I'm not 
comfortable with being unable to build with javac - which javac were ou 
testing with?  There was a bug in Javac a while back, which is why we 
switched over to use ECJ, IIRC.

If this is the case - that it's reflective of a bug in Javac - then we 
should probably simply note which versions of sun javac to avoid.
