Fixed. sorry about that.

Yes, I know, but in this case one has to start a Java application from
the OTP test suite, and handle that as a normal test case. I'm not
sure how the setup would have to be configured so that it works -- for
just this fix it's overkill, but if you think that testing jinterface
from the Java side is something that you will want to do, then it is
worth spending some effort on that. I am happily available to discuss
details. Maybe this can be handled outside the Erlang suite, with a
separate Java suite (the question is then if it's required to merge
the results into a single report).
