      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_08-b03, mixed mode)

      DESCRIPTION:
      checkScale allows a value of 2147483647 for the scale but when this
      is passed into tenToThe, a new char array is created with a size one
      larger 'new char[n + 1]' which causes the exception.

      import java.math.BigDecimal;

      public class d108737 {
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              BigDecimal.ONE.setScale(Integer.MAX_VALUE);
          }
      }
