      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0_04"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_04-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

      and

      java version "1.5.0_04"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_04-b05, mixed mode)


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux linux 2.6.12.5 #3 Sat Aug 20 10:27:33 PDT 2005 x86_64 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

      (I reported as a general Linux (not only 64bit) because e17 developers did apply a patch to "emulate" e16 to make jvm work there)

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      tested for applets, java awt apps, java Swing apps and java console apps with server and client configuration

      e17 was compilled as a 64bit app and both modes (64bit and 32bit) jvm were tested

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      when trying to run any java app using JVM 1.4 or 1.5 it fails with the following error:

      I have researched at the source code and i find a little silly the way the JVM try to guess what wm is running, because you are not thinking in another window managers; even some bad positioning happen when using kde in two different pc's; i would recommend to see for more general options inside Xserver and have a default generic config for any other wm (in case it is not registered or a nullpointerException is returned (like in this case)

      the window manager should not be relevant when trying to run a Java Console App(some apps of this kind will not run and another ones would run perfectly).


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      just try to run any java app or applet you want under e17 in a Linux amd64 system.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      run the app (any)
      ACTUAL -
