Thanks for the explanation Andrew. I'll have a go at installing the Iced Tea 
Plugin for F10 on F9. If it works ok, that's fine for my F9 install, but the 
same problem will still remain on my Kubuntu installs on this machine. I'll 
perhaps have to report a bug against the plugin on these.

Thanks again for your input.

Nigel.
