Hi Ingo,

after two evenings of experimenting this is the current status
(everything based on 0.7.29-0, will try 0.7.30-x during the day):

* the lockup can't be triggered from the console or using a remote
session and I really tried to torture the box ;-)
* the real trigger is mouse activity in X
* the other important factor is running the jvm in profiling mode,
running without jvm or with the jvm in non-profiling mode leaves the box
* I couldn't yet figure out the pattern of java program which is
triggering. Not every java program is triggering but at least I found
several public available ones. I wrote some small test programs doing
simple multithreading but they didn't trigger.

So the simplest setup I found til now is the following:

chris@blue:~$ java -version
java version "1.4.1"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build Blackdown-1.4.1-01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build Blackdown-1.4.1-01, mixed mode)
chris@blue:~$ JAVA_OPTIONS=-Xrunhprof:cpu=samples,file=crap.log,depth=3 jython
Jython 2.1 on java1.4.1 (JIT: null)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Now moving the mouse around in X will make the box lockup in less than
10 seconds.

I'm not sure if JAVA_OPTIONS is a standard jython feature but at least
it's part of the jython-wrapper script of Debian.
