Outch, that looks really bad. Even stuff where jules isn't involved
seems to fail.
I guess there are some problems in the new xrender pipeline :-/
To be honest I don't have a clue what is going wrong here,
maybe some structure-alignment assumptions are not valid on arm.
However except for font-rendering most things aren't that ugly, I
can't imagine what would cause problem.
On the other hand, I've just bought a 4GB SD card for my N800 and I've
plenty of spare time during holidays now :)
Just to be curious, does
-Dsun.java2d.xrender=false work for more complex things like

The warnings are expected, because cairo is built with a configuration
thats not quite useful for daily purpose ;)

Thanks, good to know.
Thanks again, and have a great day too :)
