If you are referring to this patchset:

most definitely yes! Do remember that it is (most likely)
against 3.3 final release rather than the current
3.3(.1) branch.

Even with your latest (20030517) GCJ 3.3 snapshot, the
"double-real-null" exception problem persists, at least
on Win2K (as expected) - if you rebuild with
additional "--enable-sjlj-exceptions -fcheck-references
-fuse-divide-subroutine" flags, and this problem
disappears (more like shoved under the carpet), I'll
breathe a huge sigh of relief!
