JDK 1.4 (sparc) 32-bit server VM builds -b59 to -b61 crash when executed
against the stress tests "nsk/stress/except/..." (12 tests totaly).
Following is typical crash log:
>>>> javac except001.java
>>>> time java -server except001 ; echo $status
# While printing this message, JVM seems to initiate the output
# stream, so that it will not need more memory to print later,
# when the heap would fail to provide more memory.
# That problem is caused by the known JDK/HotSpot bugs:
# 4239841 (P1/S5) 1.1: poor garbage collector performance
# 4245060 (P4/S5) poor garbage collector performance
# This message is just intended to work-around that problem.
# If printing should fail even so.

Earlier builds of HS do not crash against "except001"; though they
fail due to the known bug:
4428861 java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke() throws incorrect exceptions
(such failure probably masks the crash).
To reproduce the crash, please try "doit.sh" script found in the
Use it like:
sh doit.sh $JAVA_HOME
Please note, that the tests except001, ..., except012 were recently
fixed accordingly to the bug:
4433087 TEST_BUG: 12 stress tests should be ajusted to 64-bit JDK
The test version provided with GammaBase is the fixed one; and the
fixed versions will appear in "testbase_nsk.v14r04" soon under the
