Using the nightly build from:

Both IE and FF browsers crash if the java console is invoked from the browser.
At this point, this problem reproduces on one windows XP machine with ja locale.
Machine name: lettuce.east

To reproduce:
- install the above 6u4 nightly build
- open a browser (IE or FF)
- invoke java console from the tools menu

The problem is reproduced if the browser crashes.

With IE, a hs err log is generated when the browser crashes.
Attaching the hs err log.

EVALUATION Attaching native call stack (IE-stack2.txt). The crash seems to due to jpishare.dll tries to call java to load itself again. The piece of code was in 1.2.2 for Symantec JIT support. Eliminating that piece of code fixes the problem.
