Re: [zzdev] JDK1.1/1.2 compat. problem: cursor keys

Hi Tuukka,

Me and A-J tested the jars with IBM jdk1.3. It worked fine, excluding
the cursor keys. We found out that keyboard events have been changed
between jdk1.1 and 1.2 so that an undefined character is not
represented by number 0 but by 65535 (-1) instead. This change creates
a problem only when gZZ compiled with jdk1.1 (like the jars) is run
with a newer jdk/jre.

Just one quick question for you: is there any reason to compile the jars with jdk1.1? We've been getting a number of very strange halts and problems (of various types) the last few days with various .jar versions (we were working with 0706 for the most part today), I wonder if there might be some kind of version compatibility problem here?
