I had a quick look.  One odd thing I noticed was that several files
have mixed dos and unix line endings:


It is probably worth fixing these.

I also tried the cjvmti agent on linux/x86_64 with Harmony.  The first
time I hit break running HelloWorld it created a 724M cdmp file which
caused a crash in the reader.  I tried it again and got a much more
reasonable 5.7M file which could be read okay.  I've still got copies
of these if you want to take a look at them.
