Hi Erik,

Sorry, I got caught up with something else and didn't want to get back
to this issue until I was sure I had time (based on what you've said, it
is going to be a bit messy to trace). I think I can set aside enough
time now to track this down though.

Let's start where we did before. It seems now that that the applet is
loading. So it is not a parser/loader issue like before. Given that
you encounter the error during auth, this seems to be a deeper problem.

Can you once again run firefox with ICEDTEAPLUGIN_DEBUG=true and send
me the console and ~/.icedteaplugin/java.std* files please?
