Hi Neal,

It's me, not Ringo, that has the problems with Alice.  I agree with you on
applauding the work on GCJ that people did.  I'm not a big fan of Sun, nor
Java, but it is THE language for the AP Computer Science curriculum, so I
need to know the official compilers from Sun.  I wish the College Board
would allow multiple languages, as Python would be a great language for the
APCS class.  The Python Edu-sig has been pushing for that for a long time.
Mostly we bite the bullet and teach Java, although behind the scenes we
complain about it a lot :-).

Kevin, I am using the official Sun Java versions, btw, and the problem still
exists.  I'll keep experimenting on it.
