Don't normally use Star Office, but we use java for our Oracle
Application applets at work. I'll try installing it here. I did hear
something about the major java vendors making invalid assumptions based on
2.2 kernels, there is an environment variable (I need to look it up, but
it's something like JAVA_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 but don't quote that) that
will make things work until Sun and IBM fix their jdk's.
