      Description

        function RandomObject() {
            this.toString = function() {
                return (Math.random() * 100).toString();
            }
        }

        for (var j=0; j <100; ++j) {
            var arr = [];
            for (var i = 0; i < 64; ++i)
                arr[i] = new RandomObject;
            arr.sort();
        }

        Expected: no IllegalArgumentException is thrown

        Actual: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Comparison method violates
        its general contract!
