[Monetdb-developers] Workaround for JDK6 Bug 6795561

When using the MonetDB JDBC driver on JDK6 (or JRE6) > 6.10 you will get 
IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions when using transactions (possibly in other 
cases as well). This happens because there is a bug in 
CharBuffer.subSequence(), which is used in StartOfHeaderParser.java

The following patch remedies this problem, without any regressions as 
far as I can tell. Recompiling the JDBC driver is all that's required.

You'll still have to compile with the 1.5 option because the JDBC 
interface changed quite a bit between 5 and 6, but if I have time left I 
might fix that as well.

Hope this'll help someone.
