I've tried with JVM 1.4.2_08 and "UTF-8 exception" is gone and forum now works OK.

Fyi, I do run the forum on XPSP2/Java1.5/Tomcat5.5.9 as well and it works perfectly - It might be that Sun's Class Loaders for Linux and Windows have slightly different implementations ? ....

Also, when I tried to run the forum on JVM1.4.2 at the beginning I was receiving ClassFormatException ... Truncated class file. After some investigation I found the problem to be with "unzip" of my Linux system (it was simply damaging the file(s) during the inflation). I solved the problem by copying the distribution from my XP machine. Which zipper is used to make the distribution ?

Thanks teolein, this is valuable piece of information. I use WinZIP to make the .zip files.
