In the following source code, the error message is referring to the implied reference
to the this pointer which is passed to the inner class c'tor. This message is confusing
since the user never sees the this pointer to which it is referring. Perhaps the message
in this special case could explicitly state that an the c'tor for and inner class cannot be
called in this context.
public class outerobject
public outerobject(Object o)
public outerobject(int i)
// generates "Error: c:\Development\swing-0.5.1\com\sun\java\swing\nothis.java(18):
// Can't reference this before the superclass constructor has been called."
// since new inner object cannot obtain a implied pointer to outer object until it is contructed
this (new innerobject());
