      Description

      While JVM spec limits the array size to 255,

      http://java.sun.com/docs/books/vmspec/2nd-edition/html/ClassFile.doc.html#41115
      > ------
      > The number of dimensions in an array is limited to 255 by the size of the
      > dimensions opcode of the multianewarray instruction and by the constraints
      > imposed on the multianewarray, anewarray, and newarray instructions by §4.8.2.
      > ------

      jdk 1.4 javac rejects an array that's over 128. Below is the test.
