Description of problem:
Apologies for the component.  Hoping whoever received this level of
component info will reassign to the correct persons.

Java Webstart no longer works on FC3.  It ran fun on same system, FC2
fully updated.

Tried both:


[root@charis ~]# /usr/local/jdk1.5.0/bin/javaws

never responds or produces anything, but gives a java zombie:

root      4287  4095 92 01:06 pts/1    00:01:02
root      4288  4287  0 01:06 pts/1    00:00:00 [java] <defunct>

Java apps run just fine.
Here's exact versions installed:

[root@charis ~]# /usr/local/jdk1.5.0/bin/java -version
java version "1.5.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-b64)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-b64, mixed mode, sharing)

[root@charis ~]# /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_06/bin/java -version
java version "1.4.2_06"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_06-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_06-b03, mixed mode)

How reproducible:
