well, we had a bug in the fontconfig configuration file leading to too large
vertical layout in dialogs, which was fixed in an update, and this update did
migrate to jaunty-updates last Friday.

And many thanks for guiding me through the setup for the TCK!

So it should be possible to certify the Debian packages as well (maybe not the
ones in lenny, but more likely a backport).  I will not do this myself, the
certification is time consuming. If somebody wants to get involved with the
certification of the Debian OpenJDK-6 packages (after doing the paperwork of
signing the TCK and the SCA), please let me know, and I'll help where I can.
