All who is running codecoverage for icedtea-web, please note that it is not working properly under 
jvm7. Its main trouble is that java process running netx (surely plugin, not sure for javaws but 
probable) instructed bytecode (which is executed from emma sandbox) is not able to be freed.

Investigations in progress, but I do not hope for early solution. So eg automated codecoverage runs 
are now disabled :(

I do not recommend to run codecoverage on your systems, as it can lead to absolute crash. (Something 
like "can not fork new process")
