So, do you want to file this gcj bug in GNATS, or shall I?

By simple name, the compiler should perform name resolution and detect
that the nested class Entry is inherited.  But by the qualified name
Map.Entry, the compiler must find either a package named Map (none
exists) or a class by that name which is in scope (hence the required
import).  The name Map is not inherited, even though LinkedHashMap
implements Map.

Another thing to check is whether a non-canonical class name works
  protected boolean removeEldestEntry(LinkedHashMap.Entry eldest) {...}

LinkedHashMap.Entry should resolve to the canonical name

This signature intentionally left boring.
