Spark crashes after login with latest jvm build 1.6.0_01-b06


After launching Spark and hitting the login button, the main screen will flash and then the program will exit. Nothing in the logs. Console output is :

jive@ubuntu-desktop:/opt/Spark$ ./Spark
ls: /opt/Spark/lib/windows: No such file or directory
Error: Couldn't find per display information

Removed init of JMF on startup.

Most of my clients have Java Auto Update enabled for JRE and after users run the update, I've seen Spark crash on about 40% of them. I've since pushed down a GPO to disable the JRE updater as a stopgap for this, but I'd like to see a fix for it as all of my userbase use Java under Linux or Windows.

PS - it started happening with the 2.5.3 beta, and was not a problem with 2.5.2

This happens 100% of the time for me when I use my wireless network adapter, but does not happen when I use my wired network adapter. Also, when I'm logged in using wired, and unplug to switch to wireless, Spark crashes. Desktop is WinXP SP2 with Java 1.6.0-01-b06

Spark 2.5.2 exits without warning after login, just moments after the user list is loaded from the server.

Windows XP SP2 with Java 1.5.0 and 1.6.0_01.... Wildfire 3.2.2 running on W2K Server SP4

No error logs are created.

Deleting the user folder, and/or reinstalling the software does not resolve the issue.
