java.awt.Desktop.browse not supported in client VM on 64-bit Linux

      Description

      Mustang JDK introduced API java.awt.Desktop.browse(URI) to launch browser but it is not working when 32-bit JVM is running on 64-bit Linux OS. This means that client VM (32-bit) provides worse integration with desktop than server VM (that is 64-bit) and client applications (like NetBeans) cannot rely on it and have to implement their own implementation of similar functionality.
