In my case running Azureus as root did not help.
What would be a "security related java program"?
The whole history of the error in my case was this:
I had Azureus 2.5 latest beta from Packman running.
Then there was a java security update.
Azureus didn't run anymore, it started up and as soon as I tried to do
anything with it it crashed and died.
I removed the java security updates and Azureus ran again.
Then came the new Azureus 3.0.5 beta from Packman, which I installed and
it ran fine.
I applied the java patches again and Azureus went south.
I removed the patches and Azureus 3.0.5 beta runs just fine.
All the installations I have made as root obviously.
Running Azureus I have tried as user and as root.
The results are the same in all cases.
So I refrain from applying the java patches and everything is fine.
