was anyone able to get java (sun-jre14-2.4) plug-in work in firefox-bin
(under COMPAT_LINUX) on -current?

- NetBSD 1.6ZI i386 (Jan 31, 2004)
- firefox-bin-0.8
- sun-jre14-2.4 (j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.bin)
- from RedHat Linux system

i have firefox-bin (linux version) installed, i downloaded and installed
latest sun-jre14, copied gcc-3.x compiled plug-in to firefox plugins/
directory, fetched from a linux system (matching gcc
version), set JAVA_HOME and increased data size (to 256mb).

i can see java plug-in in about:plugins

but no applet from any page is loaded (tested e.g., on
firefox emmits no warnings or errors, nothing.

does anyone have any idea what's going on or how to debug this?
