Hi all,

I am really unsure here, if this is a javac bug, or an eclipse glitch
or something plain strange. Consider the following interfaces:

public interface A {
    A foo();
}

public interface B {
    B foo();
}

public interface C extends A, B {
    @Override
    C foo();
}

Eclipse _does_ compile those interfaces. If you comment out C foo(),
it (rightfully IMO) complains.
javac does _not_ compile those interfaces and (IMO erroneously)
complains about incompatible super interfaces.

Any ideas who is wrong?
