Sorry - not enough coffee The sentence should have read: "this issue affects Sun JDK 1.3.1 and earlier on Linux and Solaris 5.6 and earlier.

We are running a 2.4.19 kernel from a Mandrake and had the issue on that particular kernel. I cannot remember an install with a 2.2 kernel ut I think to remember that the workaround works for kernels 2.4.x only. Also, when browsing thru the “bug parade” on the the Sun site, I saw someone reporting an issue with a Red Hat 7.3.

We have tried to run the IBM 1.3 JVMs but we gave up because of various issues. I do not know whether this issue is happening on the IBM JVMs (I would be surprised it is not) and do not know of any workaround.
Hope this helps
