First, thanks for the input. I'll be glad to update the FAQ, but I am a
little confused about what to put into it. The file name was truncated after
31 characters, which is too odd of a number to seem to have been done on
purpose by StuffIt. What caused the filename truncation? Without
understanding that, I am not sure how to help.

I am not a Mac guy, so please excuse my ignorance. Is this something that
Mac people should already know? In other words, I wonder whether it is even
appropriate to address this in FOP doc as it is primarily a sysadmin issue,
or at least a Mac or Java issue. Also, what if /Library/Java/Home points to
a 1.1 or 1.2 java runtime? If we tell the user to use that, then FOP doesn't
work. Again, I am not sure what to recommend here.
