        Technical Environment (Product Version, JDK Version, Patches Applied, etc.):
        Mac OSX 10.8 mountainLion
        jdk 1.7.0_21, 1.7.0_51 (tried the older jdk to see if it was a problem with
        the newer jdk build).

        Problem Description:

        After installing JDeveloper the customer tried to launch JDeveloper from the
        JDeveloper.app app file, and while it starts to launch, eventually it just

        He then tried running $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev from a terminal
        window and was able to determine that a segmentation fault was being
        generated (see log file).

        The user was running the VoiceOver screenreader on his Mac.

        Per a suggestion he tried starting JDeveloper with VoiceOver turned off, and
        with sighted assistance. JDeveloper started fine. He then restarted
        VoiceOver and it was able to read JDeveloper's controls fine.

        This is what I see when I start jdeveloper (12.1.2 or 12.1.3) with the Voice
        Over enabled:
