        Description

        The java1.2 bundled with Solaris 8 QU1 (5.8 Generic_109291-03) has a failure
        that does not exist in java1.2 shipped with Solaris 8. Versions of the software
        used were:
        Netscape Communicator 4.7 (bundled)
        java1.2 (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.2_05a)

        When the applet in url
        http://diablo.ireland/cgi-bin/electron/pages?tools.monitor

        is used the text under refresh slider on upper left corner of applet should
        change to "refresh on" as the slider is used. It does not with update 1.
        However, when the java1.2 was COPIED OVER from 5.8 Generic, the slider works
        just fine.

        Both of the java versions appear to be the same (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.2_05a)
        but dirrerent version can be distinguished between by looking at the dates of
        libraries in /usr/java1.2/jre/lib/sparc (Jan 5 vs. Mar 17).

        NOTE: WHEN AN UPDATE INSTALL IS MADE FROM SOLARIS 8 TO SOLARIS 8 QU1 THE OLDER
        JAVA IS LEFT UNTOUCHED AND THE PROBLEM DOES NOT APPEAR, so fresh install is
        needed to see the problem.
