I have a desktop that started off running Woody, dist-upgraded to Sarge,
then used apt pinning to run a combination of Sarge, Etch, and Sid.
Finally I dist-upgraded to Sid about a year ago, and that desktop acts
the same way as my recent Etch install on my laptop that was immediately
dist-upgraded to Sid.

I'm running the same version of Java you are on my desktop and
on my desktop.
