 I don't understand/can't reproduce what you're describing. If I refer
 to your original testcase, I witness the following behavior:
 
   $ gcj -C dummy/ClassA.java 
   $ touch dummy/ClassA.java 
   $ gcj -C dummy/ClassB.java 
   dummy/ClassB.java:2: warning: Source file `./dummy/ClassA.java' for
   class `dummy.ClassA' is newer than its matching class file. Source
   file used instead
   $ rm dummy/ClassA.class 
   $ gcj -C dummy/ClassB.java 
 
 Am I missing something? I'd love to see a test case.
 
 On a side note, I just realized that my patch was ill-formed and
 wouldn't apply properly. I'm replacing the existing patch.
