Description
In the locales DE, IT, FR, SV, and JA java web start will hang when attempting
to  display the security dialog for signed applications or applets.
The reason is the code in GeneralUtilities.addBoldText(), takes a string arg
of the form "XXX{0}YYY{1}ZZZ"
if XXX is null, as it is in the string passed in for these locales, the method
will go into an infinate loop!

                                    

Comments
SUGGESTED FIX

change the lines in GeneralUtilities.addBoldTextr() from:
if (index > 0 && message.charAt(index - 1) != '\'')
to:
if (index == 0 || (index > 0 && message.charAt(index - 1) != '\''))

EVALUATION

fixed in addBoldText in GeneralUtilities.java
(note: fixed and integrated in fields say 1.0.2, because there is no 1.0.1_01 
available.
This is actually the one bug fixed in 1.0.1_01
