Description
I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a side effect or intended, but I think it is not printed that java classes extend java.lang.Object since they all do.

I don't know whether this should be a javap bug or a test bug.

Comments
EVALUATION The change was deliberate but perhaps on reflection it is better to leave it as it was. Will revert the behavior.
