I thought It was not supposed to happen
Here is the output that goes the [I]stderr[/I}:

Here is the output that goes the [I]stdout[/I}:

Any thoughts?

Looks like you've discovered a bug in the JDK 1.3 for whatever platform you're using. You might look through Sun's bug database to see if you can find more info - this one looks like a likely match. Unfortunately there's not a lot of info for some of these, and in many cases the solution will boil down to either (a) upgrade to a more recent JDK in hopes the problem has been fixed (very possible), or (b)figure out which part of your code is setting off the problem, and do it some other way. Good luck...

Seems almost certainly to be a JIT problem, which you can get if you mix 1.2 and 1.3.
Try turning off JIT. Use the argument -Djava.compiler=none.
I agree. Here's the link:
