        Description

        Java Plugin 1.5.0 U6, Solaris and Windows
        When policy use is enforced in java.policy

        grant {
              permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "usePolicy";
        };

              AND

        a remote policy server is specified in java.security:

        policy.url.2=https://aubing.germany/ourpolicy.policy

        which grants an applet write permissions:

        grant codebase "https://aubing.germany/writeFileApplet/writeFileApplet.jar"
        {
           permission java.io.FilePermission "<<ALL FILES>>", "read,execute,write";
           permission java.util.PropertyPermission "user.home", "read";
        };

        THEN we see

        - an AccessControlException on WinXP/IE
        - a hang on Solaris/Firefox (Applet is being loaded)


        If the SAME write permissions

        grant codebase "https://aubing.germany/writeFileApplet/writeFileApplet.jar"
        {
           permission java.io.FilePermission "<<ALL FILES>>", "read,execute,write";
           permission java.util.PropertyPermission "user.home", "read";
        };

        are specified in the java.policy file AND the remote policy server is
        disabled in java security, THEN all is fine.

        Side note: The root certificate is being stored as trusted CA in the browser
        keystore and the browser keystore is being used.
