That did indeed seem to fix the issue.  Many thanks for your help.  I
can see searching for this flag quite a few other people have been hit
by this issue with 1.6.0_18.

Are there any bad side-effects in specifying
-XX:-ReduceInitialCardMarks for production code?

Does anyone know if there will be a 1.6.0_19 release with this issue
fixed so a flag doesn't need to be specified?
