In message id <[🔎] 873e4cdihq.fsf@chinchilla.clifton-labs.com>, 
dmartin@clifton-labs.com (Dale E. Martin)  claims that "The latest and
greatest" release of the jdk fixed it for him. It isn't fixed here
with the latest version of jdk that I could find:

pc195:~$dpkg --status jdk1.1
Package: jdk1.1
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: non-free/devel
Installed-Size: 11972
Maintainer: Stephen Zander <gibreel@debian.org>
Version: 1.1.7v1a-2
