I've reported this problem to IBM.
I am seeing this problem also with the Bea jdk 1.4.2.
Possible workaround: The RHEL3 java-1.4.1-ibm package for me works correctly on

I just found this. Looks like it is a known problem.
And there is a fix:
That's all fine and good but there are applications that require 1.4.2 or
better (sun is now on 1.5). And 1.4.2 works fine on RHEL3 but not RHEL4, looks
like a step back to me.
please post the results from the java -version.

I had an update from Java support:
\"We were not able to recreate this problem, with
the latest 142 sr2 JDK on RHEL 4. Provide us sequence
of steps how to recreate this problem.
Sun bug 6195591 might be specific to there implementation.
Action Plan :
Provide us sequence of steps to recreate this problem.\"
So, it appears that the java version being used is fairly old now. The upcoming
RHEL 4 U2 service update contains the mentioned Java 1.4.2 SR2 (service release
2). Can you please give that a try and if that still does not help, please
provide more detailed recreation steps? Thanks.
Yup, the java package (java-1.4.2-ibm-188.8.131.52-1jpp_10rh) from RHEL 4 Extras Beta
appears to fix this issue.
