I don't know. I don't really know much about java and I didn't make the
change. It didn't change the testsuite results. There may have been
some discussion on firstname.lastname@example.org when the change went in.

Is not having hash synchronization going to impair the ability to
compile and run java apps on cygwin? Just wondering how big of a loss
that is. Also, I was wondering if you noticed any bizarre behaviour
with the install scripts for libjava? I was runing a make install about
a week ago, and it wasn't recognizing the exe extention, which caused
some problems with temp files.
