Is there a bug with javaws on Fedora Core 8?

Hi all,

Sample this:

{code}[root@skunk Desktop]# java -version
java version "1.6.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)
[root@skunk Desktop]# javaws visionLAN2.jnlp
[root@skunk Desktop]# java: xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.

[root@skunk Desktop]#
{code}

Thats what I get when I try running the mentioned file via javaws on a FC8 machine.

What does xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' mean? And what is the workaround?

Looks like this bug:

Fixed in the very latest Java 6. The bug is that Java didn't work with XCB, which is a replacement for a key component of X/Windows that some cutting-edge Linux distros are shipping.
