javaws Segmentation fault

All of a sudden I am getting the error "Segmentation fault" whenever I run javaws on any jnlp file. However if I use an additional argument in the command then it works.

For example I run this on a command line:
javaws dynamictree_webstart.jnlp

I immediately get this response:
Segmentation fault

However if I run the following command it works:
javaws -verbose dynamictree_webstart.jnlp

I am using Oracle Java 1.7.0_51 on Debian 6.

Any idea why this is happening? Is this where I should ask this question?

A segmentation fault looks more like an internal JRE error. Did you try to reinstall JRE / JDK from scratch ?
