The compile process for jdk 1.6 just takes ages to compile and doesn't
proceed to the next compile. Compile moves very very slowly atleast on
my machine on amd64. Similar thing happens for mono, compile hangs. I
waited a few days before reporting.

I don't have a machine to test for now, will have it in a few days. I
will test your patch then, but if anybody has the time, please report
