Seems to work for me.  FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p7, jdk-1.3.1p8_1 built with
native threads, Mozilla 1.3.

I do, however, have problems with the NIKU time reporting applet that I
have to use at work.  With the FreeBSD browser and JDK I get error
messages about not being able to get some data source.  It works with
Linux Mozilla (1.2.1) and linux-sun-jdk-, and I remember it
used to work with FreeBSD JDK 1.3.1p7.  This is a vague problem, I
cannot be sure if the applet is still the same as it was when I was
using FreeBSD 1.3.1p7, and I *think* I was using the classic VM for the
plugin then.

Other than this I haven't noticed any irregularity for patchset 8.
