>Description:

in this case when extending a "root class" from a public inner class:

---- file RedBlackTree.java -------------------------------
public class RedBlackTree 
{
    public static abstract class AbstractRBNode
    {
    }
}
---- file AccountingTreeBlock.java -------------------------------
public abstract class AccountingTreeBlock extends RedBlackTree.AbstractRBNode {
}
--------------------------------------------------------

Compiling gives:bash-2.05a$ gcj -Wall -c AccountingTreeBlock.java 
AccountingTreeBlock.java:2: Superclass `RedBlackTree.AbstractRBNode' of class `AccountingTreeBlock' not 
  found.   public abstract class AccountingTreeBlock extends RedBlackTree.AbstractRBNode {
                                                             ^
1 error

It compiles OK with JDK 1.3.1 and 1.4 and Jikes 1.5



>How-To-Repeat:
See above
No preprocessor output given by gcj

>Fix:
Break out the inner class as a "root class" in it's own .java file
