I will do that the next time I compile GCJ for windows. I'll come back 
to you.

I know but don't really understand. I mean, for most of you guys, this 
really is easier than to tie your shoes...
Is it a kind of "I hate windows" thing, or is it just too painful to 
crosscompile GCJ and test it on windows (with vmware or similar, linux 
doesn't even have to be shut down ;-)).
But ok, we could arrange that I could test stuff regularly. Lets say 
once a week or once every two week... Interested?
