      Description

      If one uses "About ..." command for a Java application on the OS X menu bar, the displayed dialog shows:

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Open Java Control Panel from System Preferences.
      2. Click "Java Control Panel" on the menu bar.
      3. Click "About Java Control Panel".

      or

      1. Open any Java Web Start app.
