(To launch with "java Foo 42" or any other integer argument.)

With my machine (Sun's JVM 1.6.0_14, Linux, amd64), this prints out
two distinct integers, which means that the two calls to intern()
did not return a reference to the same String instance, even though
they operated on strings with identical contents.

   That's actually reassuring. By not permanently caching, intern
reduces the amount of storage it uses.
   The effect of including
at some point in your program is interesting. I would have thought the
literal would be interned before its first use, but it isn't.

   Of course I presume you do not claim to have a program of the
following form that prints "true"
   String x, y;
   System.out.println(x.equals(y) && x.intern()!=y.intern());
