Yeah, "hum" is the right word here. Do all those regressions show up with
ONLY my patch applied to mainline?
I just reverted Bernardo's reverting patch and ran the C++ testsuite: the
hundreds of failures didn't show up. Weird. I was away this week-end so
everything was automated; on Saturday morning hundreds of C++ failures, on
Sunday morning they were gone.
Sorry for the noise.
Concurrent development sucks :-)
Anyway, I had a phone talk with Giovanni. He was pretty sure his
patch was fine just before I committed it.
I've pre-processed the Java source causing the problem and tried
to reduce it to a managable test case.
The error appears on a rather simple class which is wrapped inside
two namespaces. I was sure the failure lied in there, but the
error disappeared when I got rid of the Java interface stuff.
My guess is that the error is being triggered by some GCC
extension used to glue C++ with Java classes.
I've Cc'd the java list too; perhaps the GCJ people have better
insight on this topic.
