Sorry to have to disappoint you, but this server was installed just a few
days ago, and there is only ONE JDK on it:
 java version "1.6.0_07"
 Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
 Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode)

So it's impossible the TC5.5 uses a diffferent Java then TC6.

Can it be one of the libraries (*.jar) that is different, that forcec TC6 to
act differently ?
