Multiple points NumberFormatException Developer 46 on Linux

Has anyone seen AND solved this issue when running Developer 4.6 on Linux? It’s a fairly fine grained issue which a number of people have reported, for various Java app.s, but I’ve yet to find a resolution for it:

[nickf@localhost bin]$ sudo ./
java.lang.NumberFormatException: multiple points
at java.lang.FloatingDecimal.readJavaFormatString(
at java.lang.Float.valueOf(

The result is the Developer splash screen appears, along with a few more stack traces, but nothing further happens.

This problem has also been posted in other forms:

Someone at has even reported the same issue; without a reply.

I’m encountering this problem when using Fedora Core 1. Others in my workplace, using different distributions, do not encounter this problem and run Developer successfully.
