On my machine the System property "user.dir" has very strange values. I
noticed this, because I started using `Ant' (http://jakarta.apache.org/)
yesterday, and Ant relies on this property. I have packaged up a test case
myself. It is very small and can be downloaded as
http://www.znerd.demon.nl/SysProps.tgz. I have sent a bug report to
But then I tested the same test case with the Sun JDK, and it gave a
different, but still erroneous result. And then I tried `our' :) FreeBSD
pre-alpha JDK, and guess what? It worked OK! Weeehooo!
So either linux-emu has a bug, or both the Blackdown and Sun/Linux JDK's
have a bug there.
