Hi Drew,

I tried the patch and found it makes no difference.  The current SUN
JVM (1.3.0_02) gives the SIG11 as I indicated before.  The latest IBM
JVM (IBM build cx130-20010329) hangs around and eats up CPU time.  It
mostly eats system time (usage is about 8% user, 91% system).  A
normal kill is ineffective, I have to send it a -9 in order to

Hmm, I don't use any.  We are developing a large-scale JAVA servlet
application, and that one provokes the SIG11, too.  Moneydance, a
shareware finance manager that I once evaluated
(http://www.seanreilly.com), seems to run ok.

If you really want to invest the time, you might go to
togethersoft.com and download their product.  They will send you an
evaluation license as soon as you download the product, without any
further request.  But it's a big application, and you won't have any
use for it unless you develop a large-scale JAVA application.
