Abnormal termination of Jikes RVM


I modified the code of the GreenProcessor.scheduleThread(GreenThread t). Namely, I added at the beginning of the method the following statements:

Scheduler.trace("\t\tslv", "is scheduling");
Scheduler.trace("\t\t about thread t", t.toString());
Thread myThread = t.getJavaLangThread();
Scheduler.trace("\t\tthe java lang thread hidden inside", myThread.toString());
Scheduler.trace(myThread.toString(), myThread.getClass().toString());

After that, I rebuilt the rvm and I got this:
1[1-daemon-Boot-RUNNABLE] slv: is scheduling
1[1-daemon-Boot-RUNNABLE] about thread t: FinalizerThread
1[1-daemon-Boot-RUNNABLE] the java lang thread hidden inside: Thread[FinalizerThread,5,main]
JikesRVM: internal error: recursive use of hardware exception registers (exiting)
