Description
If an error occurs during applet launch, the red X tends to disappear after a couple of minutes. This is happening because the current heartbeat logic thinks that since the applet launch failed, that there is no active applet in the JVM instance, so the JVM instance times out. This is incorrect behavior and needs to be fixed.

EVALUATION

Changed error conditions during applet startup to not unregister the
applet, so the JVM instance does not consider itself idle and shut
itself down while the red X is being displayed.
