As "just" a user, I know nothing about Java other than that I often seem to 
have problems with it. I've learned not to update it unless my current 
system doesn't work with the version I have.

My previous employer always kept a working version on disk. Sometimes our 
computers automatically updated Java to a newer version,  only to result in 
problems. At those times, out IT folks would come around with their disk and 
reinstall the older version.

Not long ago, I upgraded to Java 7, but I started experiencing some 
problems. I don't recall what the problems were, nor could I state for 
certain that Java was my problem. But, I deleted it and reinstalled Java 6, 
and all worked well.

Andreas et al,
Sun Bug ID #7024514 is similar, submitted on March 4, 2011 with a
priority of 4-Low when I last printed it on March 6, 2012.  The only
workaround on it was to use JRE 6u22.

Note that I am using Slackware Linux 12.2 (K2.6.27), LibreOffice 3.5.7
with JRE 6u33, mysql 5.0.67 and mysql-connector-java 5.0.7 and Base runs
at a reasonable speed - even Oracle Report Builder 1.2.1 runs much
better than in LO 3.5.3, although it still bogs down on larger database
tables (>4000 records and growing, > 500 pages of report), but that may
be expected.
