That's true - and it's always safest to assume that it's your own code
causing an issue and not the server you're relying on.

Yes we are using the pure java version (not rpm package) for this reason.

The only reason I thought there may be a problem is that I've searched
for similar symptoms and it seems that other people have experienced a
problem too, but you're correct it's better to check our own app first
to see if it's the cause.
