        Description

        Java_java_io_Console_echo looks like this:

        JNIEXPORT jboolean JNICALL
        Java_java_io_Console_echo(JNIEnv *env, jclass cls, jboolean on)
        {
            DWORD fdwMode;
            jboolean old;
            ...
            old = (fdwMode & ENABLE_ECHO_INPUT);
            ...
            return old;
        }

        It only works by accident. jboolean is an unsigned byte. ENABLE_ECHO_INPUT on the systems I know of is 0000010, so fdwMode & ENABLE_ECHO_INPUT fits into the result. We should do things properly and return a clean boolean.
