Thanks for the hint. You're absolutely right. The file still contained
references to JDK1.2_fcs as default setting for JAVA_HOME so I suppose it

That's fine for me. I already saw today that 8014135 is coming.
After the sync do you still want to push it (and part 15) yourself through
JPRT or can I push it directly because it doesn't touch any shared code?
