I have also tried WebEx in FreeBSD with similar results. I have not
tried using f10, but I wonder if the WebEx Java component detects that
it's running in diablo (or rather not a recognised Java engine).
FWIW I have had success with other similar products in FreeBSD, namely
MeetingPlace. IMO it runs better in FreeBSD than Windows.
