Actually, jcf-dump is a C program that uses the same class-reading
code as gcj.

This means that the problem is in the compiler or perhaps in the
environment (e.g., if you compiled against code where this has 3
arguments and then ran it in an environment where it has 2

What compiler did you use to generate the code?

Nic> Where is the verifier code btw?

The runtime verifier is libjava/

Another way to see if bytecode verifies is to run it through `gcj
--syntax-only'.  I often do this.
