This works fine in one of my environments. I get the login applet.

gcjwebplugin.so does not work as hoped. This is the open source environment.

I think what needs to be understood is that, at least for me, the Sun
supplied java pieces work just fine with the URLs that you have listed.
The open-java stuff does not work.
As far as I can tell you have both the open-java as well as the Sun java
environments installed. It isn't clear to me what environment is being
picked up by your browser.
