AppletContext.showStatus(), in addition to displaying the status message in the browser's status bar, is also printing the status to the Java Console. Apparently this is interfering with some customers' applications per the forum thread http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=38310&tstart=0 . We should either take out the printing to the Java Console completely now that the functionality is properly implemented, or print it to the Java Console only if tracing is enabled.
