>> Updating to IcedTea-Web 1.5 will not give you much either because - to my knowledge - code concerning this issue has not been touched.

Thats not true.

The logic have changed  between 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 (and of course 1.5 and head) [1]

But TBH, I would bet it get even a bit worse.

All the tests I had run till now seems to be working :-/

Until "only" the proxy was not working, I thought that system properties are wrongly merged. But now 
it seems to this being more corrupted somehow :-/

New in release 1.4.2 (2014-02-05):

	JNLPRuntime.config changed to proper singleton.

This affected the time of loading the properties. Although it should not affect the reading of 
system properties.  And even less affect the merged properties.
