      Description

      Details: Netscape 4.76 and 4.75 were tested with java Plugin versions 1.3 and
      1.3.1 (latest from SUN). When attempting to access a Java Plugin
      enabled site which utilizes aspects of 1.3 specifically, the browser
      will die with a bus error.

      The plugin for Java Plugin 1.3 was placed in the directory noted below.
      I have also tried to place the plugin in the $MOZILLA_HOME/plugins
      directory with equally poor success (also being sure to adjust the
      NPX_PLUGIN_PATH env. var. accordingly to reflect these changes).

      the following environmental variables have been set:

      MOZILLA_HOME=/opt/NSCPcom
      export MOZILLA_HOME

      MOZILLA_NO_ASYNC_DNS=True
      export MOZILLA_NO_ASYNC_DNS

      JAVAHOME="/opt/jdk1.3.1"
      export JAVAHOME

      NPX_PLUGIN_PATH=$JAVAHOME/jre/plugin
      export NPX_PLUGIN_PATH


      Configuration Files: Please indicate what, if any, configurational files that might
      be of use to you and I will be sure to provide it to you.

      The following site was used as a test to note the BUS Error with Netscape:
