This same problem has bitten me about once every 2 months for the last two years (since switching to Java 1.5).
I remember this biting me a few years ago when I was doing text parsing and tagging, before Java 1.5. The project I was working on constantly reminded me of this difference from Perl because I actually had to translate the "prototype" code from C-styled Perl to Java for performance reasons (it was never benchmarked, actually). Sigh.
