FULL PRODUCT VERSION :

FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
JWS litters $WINUSERHOME\Local Settings\Temp and d:\TMP
where $WINUSERHOME is d:\winnt\profiles\$MYLOGIN
Some files are called javawsN
where N is a number
All files are temporary files.
If not removed, I observe odd behaviour of all sorts, like
instability or failure of installing a JRE.
The worst thing I observed:
I have a class that loads native classes via System.loadLibrary() for JMF
video playback. I commented out that call, and added some println("I'm here")
to be sure. I was getting "I'm here" (thus not loading native libs), but could
still watch video. I installed a fresh JVM to make sure that I was not using
the native libs from the JVM. I scanned all my drives for the native libs
(only present in the JNLP-cache).
I concluded, that the JVM was using the native libs in the JNLP-cache without
I removed the tmp-files.
I was not longer able to watch video, and I had to uncomment loadLibrary().
I am not able to reproduce but I have a strong feeling that the tmp-files
are the reason for my observation.
Temporary files should not be written.
This bug can be reproduced occasionally.
