Thread interruption does not work with netscape?

Hello e'body,
I am using a thread in my applet. The thread gets into sleep(3 min) in its run() and this state of sleeping is interrupted frequently using the interrupt(). This interruption works fine with IE but with netscape when thread.interrupt() is called it does not throw InterruptedException or any Exception. Has anyone got an explanation for this?
Thanks,
KB

I guess it's due to backdated JVM of Navigator where you did not install the plug-in for JDK1.3.....
