      Description

      ---------------------------------------
      OS : Solaris sparc 7, 8
                        IA 8
      JRE : merlin-beta_refresh b71 & b72
      Browser : Netscape 6 and Netscape 6.01A
      ---------------------------------------

      Plugin does not work correctly with Netscape 6 on Solaris using merlin-beta_refresh b71 & b72.
      On Netscape 4.x, plugin works fine using merlin-beta-refresh_b71 & b72.

      To reproduce;
      1. Install JRE merlin-beta_refresh b71 or b72 for Solaris.
      2. Create a symbolic link in the Netscape plugins directory
         % cd ${NETSCAPE6}/bin/plugins
         % ln -s ${JRE}/plugin/sparc/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji140.so .
      3. Start Netscape6 browsers or restart Netscape6 browser a second time
      4. Type at Location about plugins

      Result:
      In "Installed plug-ins" page, plug-in for merlin-beta-refresh_b71 or b72 does not be installed correctly. Instead, Netscape Default Plugin are indstalled. (please see attached plugin-ns6.gif).
      However, with Netscape 4.x, they are installed correctly.
      (please see attached plugin-ns4.7.gif)
      This problem occurs only with Netscape 6.x on Solaris.


      This problem not seen in merlin-beta_refresh b70.
      Therefore, this is regression.
