I believe this is not a bug of the SPEC JVM98.

The _202_jess calls Class#newInstance() for the `_return' class,
which is an inner class of the caller.
The call to newInstance() should succeed according to the specification
of newInstance():

  Creates a new instance of the class represented by this
  Class object. The class is instantiatied as if by a new
  expression with an empty argument list. The class is
  initialized if it has not already been initialized.

But, as you wrote, getConstructor(<class object for
`_return'>) should throw NoSuchMethodException. Thus
newInstance() working correctly for inner classes cannot
be implemented making use of getConstructor(), as long
as access modifier of inner class is not public.
