      Description


      The bug seems to be there all along in hopper (including b13 and b14).
      It was working fine with Merlin FCS and hence it's a regression.

      The bug is reproduceable on Sparc 7, 8, 9 and IA Solaris 8

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. login to your sparc machine using root id.
      2. open a terminal and set path to the hopper build (say b14)
      3. cd <your home directory not rootid's home dir>. i.e. cd /home/<your dir>
      4. check java -version. This works fine.
      5. cd <to any of the subdir from your home dir> i.e. cd /home/<your dir>/<subdir>
      6. check java -version
      7. This produces the following error message:

      Error occurred during initialization of VM
      java.lang.Error: Properties init: Could not determine current working directory.

      No application could be launched with java on any of the subfolders from the user's home directory


      This is also reproduceable by SQE-tools group member (Surendra Prasad)
