We had the same symptoms reported last March with the 5.5.16 Windows
.exe download:

The problem appears to have been caused by someone somewhere along the
way doing an ASCII-mode FTP of the un-jar'd class files to a Windows
box, and the Windows FTP client graciously converted all the line feed
bytes to carriage return / line feed pairs.

Since 5.5.20 has been out for some time with no one else reporting this
problem, is it possible that your installation went through that kind of
scenario?  You might try downloading a fresh copy of 5.5.20 directly
onto the Solaris box and see if the problem disappears.
