I appreciate the feedback. I haven't had the time myself to research and
thought I'd ask if anyone else had seen it. Before delving further into it
and filing a bug report. (I like to try and figure out the solution or at
least part way down the path before filing a bug).
I knew the runtime was the old compaq java and have been trying to locate a
source to a more recent release. Just some of the stuff I've installed on
my alpha now doesn't work as the jvm fails.
I'll try the patch when I get another shot at it and report back soonest.
