Just wondering if anyone else has a similar setup who can double-check this is a real bug, not just my PC being abit nutty.
Using Java 1.6.0-b105, and Eclipse3.2.2 under Vista.
If using the debugger I step into the String constructor "public String(String original)",
and then progress through the constructor line-by-line,
when I pass from the 2nd to last line ("this.count = size;") to the last ("this.value = v;") the VM crashes with :-
# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x6d9680a2, pid=5972, tid=4872
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.6.0-b105 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# V [jvm.dll+0x1a80a2]
# An error report file with more information is saved as hs_err_pid5972.log

I can't believe this has anything to do with the String class in particular.... however, I havn't found any other api classes that cause the VM to crash when debugging through them :S
