BackgroundDownloader dies just after installation from the b08 build. This doesnt happen when using our own bundles using registry entry.
( CSG wide WAT Build - http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/GetFile/1.6.0_10-ea-b08/windows-i586/jre-6u10-ea-windows-i586-p-iftw-k.exe)
Where as it starts after a java -version or any java applicaiton invocation. It is a regression introduced in b08. Almost in all of the platform ( Vista, XP, 2K, 2003 etc)
Install Kernel JRE
and check ps -ef | grep java
BackgroundDownloader will appear for around 30 sec and dies there. Invoking manually works fine.
