What I am trying to say is that I am in a worse position if I tell the user
to do something that doesn't work than I am if I tell them nothing at all
(the status quo). I don't doubt that OSX knows how to keep the links
straight, but it can't possibly know exactly what version of Java FOP needs.

I went ahead & updated the "running.xml" document to include information on
these two issues (filename truncation and JAVA_HOME). I added a "caveat" and
the java faq link you provided above to try to mitigate the upgrade issue. I
am not sure when the web site will next be updated, but in the meantime, if
you want to look at the content, go to:
