The issue in question was fixed under
6396599 (prefs) Preferences sync fails if jaxp transform provider
doesn't support indent-number
early in JDK 7 and the fix should also be in the OpenJDK 6 sources. The
OpenJDK 6 sources branched off from JDK 7 around build 20, circa late
August 2007 to early September 2007. If a fix was in JDK 7 before then,
it should also be in OpenJDK 6.
