Java in Netscape broken

I am using Netscape Communicator 4.08 (OSF Version) and the
needed OSF Libraries.
And with Kernel 2.2.7 Java applets worked just fine, (at least
as fine as on an intel system).
Now I have an 2.2.13 Kernel, and Java is not working any more.
Unfortunately I am not able to isoltate the problem, I tried
to find with strace where netscape starts java, but it seems
that netscape never touches the *.jar files ?!?!?
(Yes I am using strace -f)

When I have some time, I will try every kernel from 2.2.7 to 2.2.13
to find out which one introduced the bug.

Want to try something new? Are you a Linux hacker?
