Alternate JRE for Intel Mac?

Hi folks,

Has anyone encountered an alternate JRE that can be used on Mac OS X? The one that comes with it has a significant bug that I cannot find a workaround for (JDialog subdialog z-ordering issue...) ?

Are you using Java 1.5 or 1.6?

(Java 1.6 was just released for OS X 10.5.2 running on 64-bit Intel Macs. Maybe that will fix it?)

Yea, unfortunately the bug persists even into 1.6 on the Mac...
