I just read an interesing blog post. It seems that both the Java compiler and the Java runtime freeze when trying to convert the string "2.2250738585072012e-308" to a double. Next to that, the bug seems quite old and still hasn't been fixed. Being a .NET enthousiast, it was only natural for me to try this out on .NET and the C# compiler.........
