As the new sun-java6 maintainer with an egoistic point of view, I'd like
this too. 

I don't see Oracle/Sun fixing this issue soon since the bug has been
open in October 2005 [1] and the latest release of the JDK 6 (update 19)
does not include this fix (it has been released last week) [2].

There is a patch for the OpenJDK but since the official Sun JDK is not
free, I cannot apply it...

PS: Note that, for now, many people are still using the closed JDK for
various reasons (bugs, performances, etc).
