symlinks do not exist on VMS.  I did try copying in a fresh copy of the plugin 
from our SDK 1.4.0-1 distribution; neither worked.

Are you using the full SDK or just the JRE?

In this  case it was the JRE.

Then I think you're getting bitten by a problem which was just discovered the
other day. Basically the JRE kit is missing one file. See bug 199932 comment 11
for details.

I have just posted a copy of the missing file to bug 199932. Please try it, and
let me know if this fixes the problem.
Ever confirmed: true

We were already aware of this problem and had added this file to our JRE 
before reporting this problem.

Are any TRACE files are left behind in your SYS$LOGIN directory?

I currently only have access to email.  I'll look either later tonight or 
first thing in the morning.

Here is the trace and it looks very much like the problem we were seeing 
running Java by itself before adding the missing file.

The java stack trace is identical to the "missing fonts_dir.dat" file problem. I
have to ask the obvious, are you 100% sure that you now have the correct
fonts_dir.dat file, in the correct place, and with the correct file attributes?

Do you have an OpenVMS support contract, because this is a Java problem, and
we're going to need to get the Java folks involved?

Thank you for asking the obvious.  I just discovered that for performance 
reasons for our testing folks we have a duplicate install of our software on 
the machine where Mozilla 1.3 is installed so it was using a different copy of 
the JRE than the one where I had added the missing file.  One the file was 
added on this machine, the console starts and our applet is executing.

Thanks much!
