Ok, I tried it again and it seems to work fine! Great!

The menus and tabs are a bit screwed up in the (default) GTK+ look-and-
feel, but that's never really 100% worked even with Sun's official Java 

I just rememberd another thing that didn't work with openjdk... WebSDR, a 
software radio reciever <http://www.websdr.org/>.

Unfortunately I can't test this at the moment (audio in my VirtualBox 
system decided to stop working), so I'd be greatful if you could take a 
look. If you go to http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/ and drag the yellow 
bar under the waterfall displays around, you should hear the sounds of a 
radio 'tuning'.
