Yes, looks like a Java bug. One thing you could try is to read the  
property in the init() method instead of the AWT callback. Or you try it  
inside a periveledged context. (Sorry for not trying it myself but you  
have the signing infrastructure set up, so... :)

Even in the Sun area it was hard to discuss on those bugs. I think it was  
never really intended to.

BTW: I tollay agree. Java "security" "updates" broke appications for us  
multiple times as well. We will never ever consider to use JNLP  
(Appler/WebStart) again. Luckily HTML has become much more powerfull  
lately. This "situation" (and I dont blame Oracle it started in sun times)  
really kills Java on the Desktop.
