Um.......... that's weird. Segmentation fault shouldn't happen ever, so
if Java is seg faulting then that's.... bad. Glad the new Sun Java
worked, though. I'll see if I can duplicate what you saw with the seg
fault on my box and try to let Sun/Oracle know if I can.

Wild guesses... perhaps something like JAVA_HOME or another variable was
set incorrectly to the IBM Java on the box and the two Javas tried to play
together.... that shouldn't happen. If so then running the following
BEFORE trying the javaws command MAY help:

source /opt/novell/sentinel/bin/

Good luck.
