Oh, that's neat. They have Current/Commands/java pointing to something
which tells you that you *don't* have Java. So NOW YOU CAN'T CHECK THAT
TO TELL WHETHER YOU DO! ARGH!

It takes some effort to make it this difficult to determine whether a
program is installed. Apple and Oracle can both go DIAF.

Try 3.2.12-svn9019: http://vassalengine.sourceforge.net/builds/

bdgza, you too---I want to be sure this hasn't reintroduced the problem
for you.
