This front-end bug in emitted class files, if fixed, will expose bugs in backend jits the same way classes compiled by JDK 1.4 or jikes 1.15a will.
>How-To-Repeat:

>Fix:
When emitting a qualified field or method reference, JLS 13 requires that the compiler link the reference to the type of the qualifying expression; even if that class only inherits the field or method.
>Release-Note:
>Audit-Trail:
>Unformatted:
