        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Back down to Java 1.5.0_13, as our clients are using Internet Explorer 7.

        Release Regression From : 5.0u13
        The above release value was the last known release where this
        bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
