The attached code does not complete with Jikes RVM. Other Java VMs (e.g., Hotspot) successfully completes the attached code.
The code does not work with the most recent version of Jikes (3.1.1) I build Jikes for ia32 with production configuration. The VM is launched without additional command-line parameters.
