You know there’s a problem when…

$ java -version
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fd0ee055ef8, pid=2336, tid=140535311697664
# JRE version: 6.0_45-b06
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.45-b01 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# V [] InterpreterGenerator::generate_normal_entry(bool)+0x518

Fixed this issue by reinstalling the JVM. Virtual machines really don’t like random reboots. Corruption starts to appear everywhere.
