I'm migrating an app from WebStart 1.4.2 to WebStart 1.6.0.

This is all working fine, except for one small point.

Under 1.4.2, when WebStart is invoked for the first time/a new version is detected,
the app downloads and displays an appropriate image on the left of the download screen.

Under 1.6.0, the image isn't displayed.

The 'example.gif' file is present in the appropriate path i.e. images/example.gif.

Appropriate snippet from the jnlp file:-

<homepage href="http://123.456.789.123/"/>
<description kind="short">
<icon href="images/example.gif"/>

Anyone any ideas why the image doesn't display?
