Description
Before JRE6U2, 72% of the visitors who were verifying their JRE got the "JRE Is Latest" page. Now only 56% get the positive message. (This percentage was even lower between July 13th and 16th when the Auto Update people who installed JRE6U1 were sent to java.com to verify and did indeed have an earlier version.)

Steps to reproduce this problem:
1) install jre 6 from http://koori.sfbay/onestop
2) go to java.com with ie6
3) install JRE 6u2
4) after installation, go to verification page
5) user is unable to verify successful installation

EVALUATION

It looks like the jre install verification applet is using the <object> tag with the clsid starting with 8AD9C840.
My investigation shows that if jre 6u2 is installed with the browser window remained open, I could run applet with the <applet> tag using the newly installed 6u2. 
So I would think that if the jre install verification applet uses the <applet> tag instead of the <object> tag, the jre install verification would work.

A fix is to set all the ssv redirect keys during installation regardness of which windows platform.
