Hi,

> Also, how did you happen to notice that they are missing?

I have a Java application which generates a log file, for making it
more maintainable (log errors, user actions and so on). Since this is
a multilingual (and also bidirectional) app, I put user country and
language at the beginning of each log session in addition to
java.runtime.name property to make sure if user's JVM is supported.

Here I filled a bug:
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=30884

I'm happy that although my app doesn't work on GCJ on Ubuntu 6.06 (due
to problems with regex, dom and much more), it works fine on 6.10 ;)

Thanks again,
Best.
