      Description

      On Solaris, 'su' to root and run 1.4.1 or 1.4.2. The JDK will abort with the
      following error message:
      Error occurred during initialization of VM
      java.lang.Error: Properties init: Could not determine current working directory.

      This only happens when the current directory is not readable by root, which
      is typically the case for NFS-mounted filesystems.
