         bad class file: /home/spf/private/j2sdk1.5.0/jre/lib/rt.jar(java/util/Collections$ReverseComparator.class)
         undeclared type variable: E
         Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the classpath.

      Steps to Reproduce (be specific):

      Compile the attached file with "javac -source 1.5 FailedTest1.java":

      ----
      //import static java.util.Collections.sort;
      import static java.util.Collections.*;

      public class FailedTest1 {
          public static void main(String [] args) {
              sort(new java.util.LinkedList<String>());
          }
      }

      ----

      If the commented out import is uncommented and the other import is commented, the program compiles.
