These applet tests are tests by AppLabs on behalf of update releases.

x86-win2003se several applet tests fail with tiger but pass with MS-VM.

The following applets failed with 150_08-ea-b01, 150_07fcs & 150fcs using IE6.0. 
Each was retested with 150_08-ea-b01 using Netscape 7.2 but still failed.

They passed with MS-VM using IE6.0.

I have attached a spreadsheet plus a jpg file provided by AppLabs. The jpg file refers to GameHouse-Duffer Slots applet.

I was unable to reproduce the exceptions for the following applets:

I will ask AppLabs to rerun these.

EVALUATION i don't think there is new information in this CR. it is well known that MSVM and Sun JVMs have different behavior, and various game applets show up these differences. there is a long history here. please contact hung.t.nguyen for details. following long-standing practice, i plan to close this as a DUPLICATE of 6399750. if anyone thinks this is wrong, please contact Hung or myself and we can talk about it. other relevent CRs are 6377626 and 6415212. thank you.
