Bootstrapping Java from i386 version

Has anyone managed to get the i386 jdk1.4.2 running on amd64?  (If
this even possible)?  I've tried writing a wrapper that sets
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point onto my i386 filesystem and running java but
it just generates lots (377K/sec) of traps.  Running ktrace shows that
it starts ok (mapping the correct .so's), checks the password file,
creates a /tmp/hsperfdata_peter directory and then goes off into the
wide blue yonder.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
