• Certain .zip files cause crashes when they are used in the -classpath.
• On large projects, it may seem like MacJikes has crashed. Be reasonably patient. I used a profiler to find some of the best places to yield to other applications. IMO, MacJikes' "yielding" is reasonable the way it is currently configured (well, at least for PowerPC).

If you submit a bug report to Jikes Compiler Project, please email me about the problem as well.
MacJikes includes software developed by:
Philippe Charles, charles at watson.ibm.com
David Shields, shields at watson.ibm.com
of IBM Corp. as part of the IBM Research Jikes Compiler Project, http://www.ibm.com/research/jikes
Remember, if you do run into problems, it would be good idea to check the MacJikes FAQ page first (as mentioned in the "Known problems section.") If the problem is reproduceable only under MacOS, direct the email to me. Please indicate your development environment, the situation, and steps to reproduce the problem.
How can I tell the difference between a Jikes compiler bug and a MacJikes bug?
If it crashes, it is a MacJikes bug most likely. Email me, Steven Bytnar (sbytnar at kagi.com), with the output of a Macsbug "stdlog"! The most important part is the "sc6" and "sc7 sp 1k" listings.
If your code compiles fine under javac, but does not compile under MacJikes,
and your code adheres strictly to the Java Language Specification, then
you might want to report problems by using the resources described on the
Jikes Compiler Project
