Hi David,

Thanks that worked. And except for some drawing irregularities it
actually seems to behave nicely.

The only failures seemed to be Serialization issues with Font. I added
some preliminary Serialization support and now we get all green!

Now that ant is in Debian unstable I installed it and tried it out. I
had the following problem at first:

/tmp/jcommon-1.0.0-rc1/ant/build.xml:245: The following error occurred
while executing this line:
/tmp/jcommon-1.0.0-rc1/ant/build.xml:228: Warning: Could not find
file /tmp/jcommon-1.0.0-rc1/maven-jcommon-project.xml to copy.

But removing all maven references from build.xml seemed to work around
that and I could compile and change some code for better debugging.
