As I've been doing most of the packaging of ecj in Fedora of late,
I must double-check my understanding of something: this issue, do
you believe it to be caused by some fedora-specific patch?  My
assumption so far is that this bootstrapping issue is from changes
to ecj upstream.  If this is correct, I might suggest for clarity
on this list to stop referring to "fedora's ecj" and instead refer
to the upstream ecj version that introduces the issue.  If this is
not correct, I would be very interested in any feedback about what
patch is guilty.
