Hey guys,
The whole thing about sun running this on unix and not windows, go me scared to death, so I ran this thing on unix and I get a wierd message, but the client starts up and runs fine.
The message is:
Font specified in font.properties not found [-urw-itc zapfdingbats-medium-r-normal--*-%d-*-*-p-*-sun-fontspecific]

I do not use any font classes in my code, so I have no clue where this is coming from.
Thoughts?

That's ugly but normal.
It just means that aspecified font was not available in this windows manager. It will be subtituted.
No need to be scared.

My only problem is this happens on a "Unix" system, so Sun is going to get one ugly application.
I guess I will just role with it, time to upload *gulp*

I had the same problem running under Linux, this is a well-known problem:

I even listed it in my userdoc under a "Known Problems" section.
