I can't answer your prime question, but I have and do run the jre-6u
5/6/7 issues from the java site successfully. Trying the update 10 from
there fails, but I "unnerstan" that's been biased towards WinBlows for
the new Explorer browser.

I do have the java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-1.4.2.0-40jpp.115 in use as well.
