To reproduce:

1) install jre 6u14 b01
2) install sun service tags software  from inventory.sun.com
3) uninstall jre 6u14 b01

After step 1, servicetag  directory is created in 6u14 with no servicetag file; this is correct. However, after installation of sun service tags software and uninstallation of jre, a servicetag entry is created in the registry.
This can be checked by running the command 'stclient -x'. Expected result is no
servicetag should be created during uninstallation of jre.
Tested with b02, after uninstallation service tag entries are not removed from the
registry and the folder jre6/lib/servicetag is not deleted.

EVALUATION This bug was a known issue in b01, due to incomplete fix of 6676840 This is now fixed along with 6809561
