Aha... not so tricky after all. The problem is that the alternatives
system still points to the old plugin location at

/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/i386/ns7libjavaplugin_oji.so

instead of the new one at 

/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

Both files are present, but only the new style one works. I'm sure
someone better acquainted with Java can tell me why there's a
difference. In any event, I just bypassed alternatives by symlinking to
the correct file in ~/.mozilla/plugins. Presumably this will be fixed at
some point. If someone can confirm that I'm understanding the basic
situation correctly, I can file the bug report.
