        JVM reports EXCEPTION_FLT_STACK_CHECK when calling a Java method through
        JNI. A java core file is attached.


        Problem has a short term workaround, creating a .hotspotrc file which
        includes the following prevents the EXCEPTION_FLT_STACK_CHECK

        If customer passes

        to the Java VM initialization the problem does not reproduce.

        The method isEnabled is implemented as

            protected static synchronized Tracer getTracer() {
                return s_tracer;

        The program showing this error is part of customer product namely dmbasic.
        This program compiles and executes Basic programs which support
        extensions specific to our products. One such extension is the ability
        to invoke a Java method from Basic. The stack trace in the
        hs_err_pid...log file shows calls in dmbasic and DOCNPB22.dll (a third party product that supports compiling and running Basic programs).
        Customer can provide a copy of dmbasic.exe, docnpb22.dll and our dfc.jar file that will reproduce the problem on Windows platforms.

        We need to see why it is causing the problem.
