However testing with all possible linux distributions is not a good 
choice either.

And distributions based on 'latest' version of everything plus all kind 
of experimental/non stable/vendor specific stuff -  like fedora - are 
not the best choice for a supported platform.

Can you reproduce it on RHEL or RH9 ?  If not - report the bug on fedora.

It is not 'official view' - but some developers have issues with FC :-)

I believe a lot of products ( and not only java ) officially support 
only few distributions. We can't ask you to re-install your system - but 
you can't ask us to reinstall and test your favorite distro either. 
There are just too many incompatible linux distributions.

If jetty works on your linux distro - just use it. It's a fine open 
source product. Or you can use resin or any other server.

Probably the comments should be more explicit - like 'unsupported 
platform / not reproductible on supported platforms '.
