What is the package that provides the java alternative with the
rmiregistry slave ?

Make your /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/java file available in the log
as well as the package name and package version that provides

Then this bug should be cloned to that package (or those if needed)
once those cloned bugs are fixed, gcj-4.4-jre-headless and other can
conflicts with the broken versions of those packages.

Remove the package(s) providing the java alternative that contains the
rmiregistry slave.
