      Description

      Some iwon game applets fail to load specifically on Windows Vista/ IE 7.
      The problem is neither reproducible on Windows Vista/ FF 2.0.0.14 nor XP-pro(sp2)/ IE 7

      Tested OS: 32-bit Vista(sp1)/ XP-pro(sp2)
             Browser: IE 7, FF 2.0.0.14
             Build: jre 6u7-b02/ jre 6u6-b02


      Steps to reproduce:
      ------------------

      - Install jre 6u7-b02 on the Windows Vista test system
      - Using IE 7 to browse iwon game home page
      http://www.iwon.com/home/allGames.jhtml
      - Click to play "Caribbean Stud" game (or Bat-A-Rat, Battle Tank, ...)

      If the game applet fails to load, then the problem is reproducible.

      Attached is the defect screenshot and here's the NPE from Java console:

      java.lang.NullPointerException
      at sun.plugin.AppletViewer.loadJarFiles(Unknown Source)
      at sun.applet.AppletPanel.runLoader(Unknown Source)
      at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source)
      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)


      The same game applets load OK on Vista/ FF 2.0.0.14 and XP-pro(sp2)/ IE7
      The same issue is noticed on Windows 2008-standard/ IE 7 using jre 6u7-b03. When the problem occurs, thre's only one way to kill IE is to use Windows task manager.
