Very sorry about the delay - I didn't get your email.

So far the change has simply lead to slow graphics rendering in
freeplane (interestingly when you get to the second/third line of a node
it suddenly speeds up mind), but without corruption.
There is a separate failure where freeplane suddenly ignores all
keyboard input, but I later confirmed this also happened under the
normal graphics engine, so shouldn't be related (I can report this bug,
but there is nothing useful I can say about it - I have to restart
freeplane at this point).

Currently I use Eclipse, RSSOwl, and now I2P - OpenJDK seems to behave.
Aside from the strange keyboard issue, the other major failure I've seen
is with Open Wonderland (http://openwonderland.org/) - the
game/experience is unusable, I'm told due to
http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=568 - you can see
the long thread I had here -
This of course is non-essential.
