Not sure whether you consider that cheating, or to much difference, but I would 
try to help the compiler by telling it that x and y are 'final'.
Another thing the compiler could prefer is the 'ideomatic' use of getters and 
private fields. But I guess you tried that?
I am just randomly guessing here anyway.
