exactly is specified for this case.

It seems obvious to me that it should not work well.

The static initializer should start and complete before
any instances of the class is created.

So creating an instance in the static initialized does
not make any sense to me.

Whether it should be a compile time error or a runtime
error or what runtime error must be in the specs somewhere.
