This looks OK with my test program, which tests just about every method,
and also with Freenet. Cool.

Today I found a different bug in the BigInteger(byte[]) constructor, where
bogus output is returned:

import java.math.BigInteger;

public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        byte b[] = {73, -106, 2, -46}; // aka "1234567890"
        System.out.println(new BigInteger(b));

mjr::mjr$ javac Test.java ; java -cp . Test
mjr::mjr$ gcj --main=Test -o test Test.java ; ./test

The value returned is not always 0, but it seems to be for smallish
