      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When using generic interfaces which "implements" another interface (a syntax error), the compiler freezes.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Compile the test case code. Save it in a file "Y.java".

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The compiler should emmit an syntax error and finish the compiling with an error status.
      ACTUAL -
      The compiler freezes and never finish the compiling.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      class C {}

      interface Y<S> {}

      interface X<B extends C> implements Y<B> {}
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Workaroud? Kill the compiler and fix the code :)

      Release Regression From : 5.0u11
      The above release value was the last known release where this
      bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
