Applet does not work anymore

I've had this applet working just fine before, albeit some time ago .. Now when I want to load it on my page i get

basic: Plugin2ClassLoader.addURL parent called for http://localhost:8080/about-1.0/SunScreben2.jar
basic: exception: null.
at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2ClassLoader.getTrustedCodeSources(Unknown Source)
at$ParentCallback.strategy(Unknown Source)
at$ParentCallback.openClassPathElement(Unknown Source)
at$JarLoader.getJarFile(Unknown Source)
at$JarLoader.access$1000(Unknown Source)
at$JarLoader$ Source)
at Method)

in the console.
I've tried different things, deployJava.js the good old <applet> tag and no matter what, it gives me the same thing.
To debug it i've tried giving in bogus class name, bogus archive, and it gives the same error. Example

<applet width=100 height=150 MAYSCRIPT

Same error all browsers, the code is correct and the jar is downloadable if you address it directly.
Now i am on Java7u45 ... has something broken between then and now or am I doing something horrible wrong.. (this code USED to work with wicket.)

I am signing the jar with my own testcert but even so I can see the browser contacting verisign(sysinternals)! (whats up with that? I didnt ask for that ?)..

Thanks ?
