BZ #8: Infinite loading loop when exception class contains method that throws itself

Status fields:

creation_ts:2005-07-21 23:10
Attached test case EvalError is a subclass of Exception, that contains a method,
which throws EvalError. This legal cyclic reference causes an infinite loop in
cacao cvs when the class is loaded (e.g. with cacao -verbose EvalError).

(Note: After some time, this infinite loop causes an OutOfMemoryError, which
causes an abort due to a different bug, a stacktrace printing bug. That bug
might also be worth fixing.)

The OOM stacktrace printing bug is fixed. The real bug needs more attention. But
this is a showstopper for jetty, so it's important.

This bug is fixed.  Jetty works now.
