You would be violating Sun's Binary Code License in doing so.  Even

...would require disassembling the class file, which is also in
violation of the Binary Code License.

It's likely that Jikes is doing something we do not expect.  A better
solution would be to try to reproduce this problem with Jikes and some
Free code.
