Splash screen not showing up....

Hello friends.
I was checking out the jgoodies demo, when i saw the splash screen for application downloaded with java web-start.

I wanted to do the same for our product too. Checked some samples and did it.
But now the notorious "Working in my machine, not in his" problem came up.

I deployed the application in my machine, accessed it from the same machine, the splash screen showed up. Not the first time, though.

Then I checked it from another machine. But then it doesn't show up. The icon specified as kind="default" is shown application list.

When I checked with the splash.jpg as the icon kind="default", it was showing the image as the application icon.
Am I doing anything wrong here?
What are the things to take care when adding splash images?
Is it true that the splash screens does not appear the first time?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
