It is worse than that...using the JNI calls to create a JVM from a C
program which has made any system calls previously will trap outright.

I checked again.  While the Sun JDK for Linux does not include a JDK, you
can download one separately from Inprise.

I don't know what "umbrella" they are under, but they offer for download a
separate JDK which may not pass the Sun compatibility tests but doesn't
trap when you call JNI_CreateJavaVM.
