        Hi,

            I'm reading the code and have noticed a minor typo in the function
        "CollectedHeap::pre_initialize()".

            I think it should be "#ifdef COMPILER2" instead of "#ifdef
        COMPLER2". I haven't checked whether it has been corrected in the
        latest revision.

        Thanks,
        Chen
