If you recently upgraded your Ubuntu to 8.04 (64bit version), the Sun JVM that comes with it may be giving you an error similar to this one:
# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fa25489d755, pid=8123, tid=1082538320
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (10.0-b22 mixed mode linux-amd64)
# Problematic frame:
# C [libc.so.6+0x30755] catgets+0x15

I have a solution for those of us running 64 bit systems:
sudo apt-get install ia32-sun-java6-bin
sudo update-alternatives –config java
Then choose the ia32 version of Java 6.
Thanks a lot guys.
