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.
 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).
