Using oracle.home=/usr/home/saper/sw/sqldeveloper
Using ide.user.dir=/usr/home/saper/.sqldeveloper

java version "1.5.0_13-p7"

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build
1.5.0_13-p7-root_03_dec_2007_00_10, mixed mode)

Maybe your Java VM does not start up? Are other java apps running?
This may be related to some diablo-jdk problems reported on the -java
