Closed as program error.
Error Message: (<unknown>:9266): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_message_dialog_set_markup: assertion `GTK_IS_MESSAGE_DIALOG (message_dialog)' failed Segmentation fault . Stack Trace: #0 0xfffffff8a774b736 in ?? () #1 0x000000000053c9e0 in ??

() . As of IBM 7.0 SR6 FP1/IBM 8.0 GA and onwards for 7.0/8.0 release, IBM Java informs the user when their Java maintenance level is more than 6 months old. Unlike Oracle, the IBM Java sdk doesn't attempt to verify whether the user's Java maintenance level has any Critical Vulnerability Exposure fixes pending. To stop the built in date expiration, enable the following property in deployment.properties file:- deployment.expiration.check.enabled=false
The crash is not observed if we pass any JVM command line options during the launch of webstart application. For eg. javaws -silent test.jnlp javaws -verbose test.jnlp
The crash use to happen as there was a jump to wrong address from JDK's gtk_message_dialog_new function. The reason for the illegal jump was the wrong declaration of JDK's gtk_message_dialog_new function.
The JDK has been updated with the correct declaration of gtk_message_dialog_new function. . This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases: 7 SR9 FP20 (126.96.36.199) 8 SR2 (188.8.131.52) 7 R1 SR3 FP20 (184.108.40.206) .
