Has anyone successfully used Derby with OS X 10.4 and Java 1.5.0_02?  I'm getting the "Cannot log transaction changes ..." problem (http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1) even though I've used the
    derby.storage.fileSyncTransactionLog=true
fix.

I am able to create a database and put data into it.  But after shutting down and starting  a new session, I get the "log transaction ..." error when I try to add to it.
