Here are my specs and the java messages displayted when I hit
'File->New' in the gli below.

Java details:
stephen:~ spdegabrielle$ java -version
java version "1.5.0_06"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-112)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_06-64, mixed mode, sharing)
NOTE: A recent system update made 1.5 the default JVM- I believe 1.4
is still on the machine - but would have to be specified.

System Version:Mac OS X 10.4.6 (8I127)
CPU Type:PowerPC G5 (3.0)
