Serializing writeObject recursively causes java.lang.StackOverFlowError when
the objects are deeply or has a bidirectional link.  This may be a duplicate
of Bug ID #4152790 in which the Dev Status says 'Investigated, cannot reproduce
yet'.  We have two sample cases that demostrate this problem.  We are happy to
send them by e-mail since these are rather bulky to submit by the web page.
The underlying problem has a strong influence not only on the serialization
but also the RMI communication.
We have confirmed this problem for JDK 1.1.3, 1.1.4, 1.1.5, 1.1.6, and 1.1.7
on both Win32 and SPARC/Solaris, and JDK 1.2 FCS Build N also on Win32 and
