1.0.1 02Fixed
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!

CONVERTED DATA BugTraq+ Release Management Values COMMIT TO FIX: 1.0.1_02 FIXED IN: 1.0.1_02 INTEGRATED IN: 1.0.1_02 VERIFIED IN: 1.0.1_02

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

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) != '\''))
