I noticed it is still different.
My recollection (I haven't looked at this in a while) is that the gcj
implementation is correct.  And, it relies only on the published Class
API.  So, why not just use it directly in Classpath's Class?

Sebastian> +        String fullName = getName(klass);
Sebastian> +        int pos = fullName.lastIndexOf("$");

I think relying on the name mangling is not valid.
That is why gcj's implementation uses isAnonymousClass and the like.
