To be honest, it sound like you have / had a different problem. That said, I am glad you have resolved it and we will keep it in mind in case others report problems with a similar set of symptoms. ~Niels  The fact that is solved by upgrading Java6 to Java7 make it sound like it is/was a bug in Java6. The original problem includes a configuration issue that (to my knowledge) has not been triggered by bugs in OpenJDK (yet). __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
