	Every port version after 0.9.3 does have the following bug: When
	opening a page that features java applets of any kind, the
	browser crashes, but doesn't leave any further information but
	the following:


	INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not start JavaVM!

	System error?:: Unknown error: 0


	The link in /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins has been checked, and
	other (local) java programs like ldapbrowser or airport do work
	fine, so it's unlikely a problem with java itself.
	That bug is present since the first firefox-1.0 version through
	all port versions including the current 1.0r1,1 ... with the
	latest 0.9.3 all worked fine.

	<precise description of the problem (multiple lines)>
	install jdk-1.4.2p6_6 javavmwrapper-1.5 and firefox-1.0.r1,1 and
	open the page http://www.hamburgerdom.de/ and click on either
	the left or the right "enter" button, which should open the main
	page with a java navigation panel on the left.


	No idea yet :(
