Bah, you're right - I had specifically commented out all the methods for
matches() and split(), but did not comment out the import statement. I
guess my BOOTCLASSPATH environment variable has been a lurking bug
longer than I realized :( I plan to check in my latest revision of
String soon (which fixes toUpperCase); and this time I will make sure
that Classpath is self-contained.

Well, I recently got a larger hard drive, so I have slowly been in the
process of converting my machine into a dual boot. I already have
access to some Linux distro CDs, but thanks for the offer. But even if
I start doing most of my hacking in GNU/Linux, I still think it is nice
to try to accomodate cygwin.
This signature intentionally left boring.
