A recent javac bug fix (4381996) caused javac to start inlining finally blocks
always.  Consequently, some stylized code involving deeply nested try-finally
blocks will explode in code size, resulting in their failure to compile at all.
Unfortunately, some JSP implementations regularly generate such stylized code.
The bug fix should be backed out to allow such JSPs to continue to work.

EVALUATION Right. There will still be a command-line flag to control how much inlining happens for finally blocks. ###@###.### 2002-08-29
