Re: Bug#475669: Suggest informing the user

Thanks Shaun,

The last time I had Azureus working was also with Sun's VM. I didn't use it 
for several months, and it looks like the default java VM was switched to GIJ 
by an upgrade in the meantime. So unfortunately I cannot confirm whether it 
worked previously.

I just tested with gij 4.1 and gij 4.2, and they both exhibit the same 
behaviour as gij 4.3, ie. they fail to establish any peer connections.
