i think the problem was that the java.vendor property has changed, because
sadly "Sun Microsystems Inc." does not exist anymore.

now i have no idea why the heck OOo needs to know which JVM it's running
with, but then again the C++ UNO stuff creates vtables out of whole cloth
at runtime, so presumably the public JVM interfaces aren't good enough
either :)
