The startup time got better (first start was worse, but the 2nd and 3rd
were as fast as Sun's JDK). But I still have the UnkownClassException -
maybe I should file a bug report for this, but which package?
java-gcj-compat, or some eclipse-package?

Also the generics don't work when using the java-gcj-compat VM as you
suggested for beeing able to use ecj as compiler.


You will wish you hadn't.
