If an error occurs during applet launch, the red X tends to disappear after a couple of minutes. This is happening because the current heartbeat logic thinks that since the applet launch failed, that there is no active applet in the JVM instance, so the JVM instance times out. This is incorrect behavior and needs to be fixed.

SUGGESTED FIX webrev: http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u11/6727087.0 testcase: http://j2se.east.sun.com/deployment/www/tests/1.6.0_11/6727087/

EVALUATION Changed error conditions during applet startup to not unregister the applet, so the JVM instance does not consider itself idle and shut itself down while the red X is being displayed.
