Hi. I'm going to take Larry's advice on this one. I did see your comments
in the issues re not able to reproduce. Unfortunately, with these kinds of
situations -- OS differences, levels of OS patching difference, etc. --
it's a tough call. What I will say is that there have been SOME issues with
using 64-bit Oracle Java on 64-bit Windows, the problems are NOT
consistent, and may, in fact, be due to extension problems with some advice
on how to troubleshoot. I woudl not make a blanket statement that ALL
Windows users should only use 32-bit Java.

So, stay tuned. I'll do what I think is reasonable, and hopefully not point
fingers exclusively at AOO 3.4.
