Right. The check that is causing this error is in jvm.cpp [1]:

1271  if (m.is_null() || !m->is_method() || !m()->is_public() || 
m()->is_static()) {
1272    THROW_MSG_0(vmSymbols::java_lang_InternalError(), "No run method");
1273  }

I'll file a bug unless someone has a good explanation for this behavior.

Thanks,
Sean
