Example is found in file java.lang.VMCompiler, by code:

  private static final MessageDigest md5Digest;

  static
  {
    try
      {
        md5Digest = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
      }
    catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException _)
      {
        md5Digest = null;
      }
  }

The second assignment in the catch is in conflict with Java standard. (checked
against jdk 1.5.0.)

>From a logical point of view this is not really an error, but from a
conformance point ov view it is.
