Thanks for explaining. I worked around it by having my own versions of
the gnu.* classes that extend the java.* classes.

BTW, I noticed that the nio classes use getNativeFD to get at the
underlying handle, I think that at some point in the future this needs
to be changed, because for platforms that don't have an int sized native
handle, this doesn't work that well.
