        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        6.0

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        I am the author of Pauker (http://pauker.sourceforge.net), a free flashcard programm written in Java. I use Java Web Start for application deployment.
         
        I got a bug report from a user who wanted to start Pauker by dragging and dropping a lesson to the Pauker Java Web Start desktop symbol. Unfortunately, this failed and the lesson was DELETED! This kind of bugs are catastrophic.
        I could reproduce this problem both on Linux and on Windows. The following exception gets thrown at startup:
         
         InvalidArgumentException[ Ungültige Argumente angegeben: {C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Nutzer\Desktop\test.pau.gz, C:\DOKUME~1\Nutzer\LOKALE~1\Temp\javaws6 }]
         at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Unknown Source)

         at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Unknown Source)
         at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.
