Over the last two days, I had some very strange behavior of JBoss. I was fiddling around with JAAS, EJB security et. al. The code just didn't want to do what it should. After Explorer (this was on Win2k) crashed a few times, I rebooted. And voila: JBoss behaved as it should with my app just running. *sigh* This really cost me a day.
In the past (as a (former) NetBSD hacker) I told people that WinNT and 2k isn't that bad and that they are stable bla bla bla. This really changed my opinion :-/
