That's correct, and there's nothing we can do about it.

I managed to get swing to work with kaffe on about 75% of the examples. I
vaguely recall that I couldn't get it to find the classes either, I then
worked around it by unzipping them and pointing kaffe at the unzipped
swingall.jar tree.

Later I got it to work with the .jar directly, if I remember how I'll post
it to this list. Also, if you find that Swing apps on Kaffe crash with
Stack Overflow exceptions, change the minimum stack size to something like
4MB. (It's a command line option, I can't remember which one and Java is no
longer on box, thank God :-))

I also tried to get Swing to run with Uncle George's JDK 1.2 from
alphalinux.org, but I would always get blank white windows, which struck me
as strange.
