I don't know if Notes8 uses an external java virtual machine or contains
a java virtual machine itself, but your problem appears similar
to this one:

You could try to detect the file Notes8 uses on
your system and try the "sed" trick explained in that page.

It worked for me (Sun Java 6, Fedora 8, misc java apps).

Good luck.
