blackdown's nsplugin is crash happy in my experience. There are some
occasions where it's stable, but for most real applets and etc. It just
crashes the browser. The emul-linux-x86-java one is best IMHO.
Along those lines I think the 1.4 emul-linux-x86-java package needs to
ship 1.4 x86 sun instead of blackdown.
