Description
The integration of the embedded changes (6988830) to 6u23 have inadvertently changed the implementation of Runtime.exec so that it uses fork() rather than fork1() on Solaris. This creates the potential for problems on Solaris 8 and 9 (Solaris 10 is okay). See comments for more details.

EVALUATION

we need to still use fork1() calls on solaris systems.
