I guess it is not a show stopper, but recall that I have a pending issue
that merge over http:// from the JavaHL binding crashes the JVM on
Windows. Patrick Mayweg is planning to look at it when he gets home from
vacation this weekend. He did some preliminary checking and this looks
like it might be a tough problem to solve. The issue is that Java uses a
really small stack size on Windows and there is no reasonable way to alter
it or control it. Some changes in the merge API have apparently caused
the stack usage to exceed this limit. Unless there is some way to compile
the JavaHL DLL so that it allocates all memory from the heap, I do not
know how this could be fixed.

Hopefully Patrick will find some clever solution.

Just wanted you to be aware of it. I am really not sure what we are doing
to do about this in Subclipse. It is pretty nasty to just crash the
user's IDE.
