Comparing J2SE 1.3.1 and 1.4 sample:

Methods marked as deleted such as
append(long) and connect(InetAddress, int)
exist in both APIs.

This bug is obvious also on page:
http://javadiff.sourceforge.net/jdiff/reports/j2se131_j2se14_docs/changes/java.net.URLDecoder.html
where the same method is removed and added. It seems
the problem is in that comments differ.

    Yes, this is one of the rare cases where JDiff fails to merge an add and a
    remove into a change. Good catch. I suspect that it is due to the doc comment
    being reused for the new method. I'll poke around some more on this
    one.
