people using Matlab having problems with Java, please:

1. make sure you have sun-jdk14 2.x installed
2. make sure you are NOT using the Matlab-bundled Java - the bundled Java
   appears to be broken in emulation (perhaps it's the known-broken 1.4.1)

The latter thing can be ensured by symlinking - e.g.
if you have matlab installed in /usr/local/matlab6.5, there
is directory

It should be enough to just symlink 'java' to /usr/pkg/java/sun-1.4
(after moving the directory aside). 

Please try that and report if the problems persist.
