      Description

      [dep, 09Jul2007]
        
        My javaws-started Sun IM client dumped core in libzip after it had
        been running a few days.
        
        There is clearly a bug in libzip in that it dumps core, be it because
        it was given bad input or there is a flaw in its own logic. If the
        cause was indeed a corrupt jar file, there must be a second bug
        somewhere in the Java stack which resulted in the application being
        supplied with the corrupt jar file.

        Another data point: after I started the IM client last week, I
        started a second one while the first was still running. I seem to
        recall that this caused a re-download of the application.
        (Attempting that again today had the same effect, though I have been
        unable to reproduce the failure). One possibility is that this
        caused the corruption, which would be a serious bug in javaws.
