Security problems when calling an applet from javascript

Hi all,
as long as I'm here, I might as well bother you guys with all my problems.. ;o)
I am using Netscape 6.2 and the java plug-in 1.3.
I have an signed applet that performs some stuff that needs security privileges. Let's call the stuff: runSecurityTest().
When I run the applet and runSecurityTest() in one "motion", I have no problems, but when I initialize the applet and then try to call the runSecurityTest() from Javascript, I have a security exception.
I understand that this used to be a problem in earlier versions of Netscape and to work-around it, one needed to run an applet in one flow before it was possible to call any other applet from the same jar file from javascript, without running into security exceptions.
Does any one know if this has changed, or anything that would help me solve this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help.
