[Bug 372103] Re: click on bookmark crashes firefox with java content in clipboard

** Description changed:

+ Users are crashing if their clipboard contains anything from a Java
+ OpenJDK app if they try to use their bookmarks in Firefox.
+ 
+ This is due to a workaround that was implemented in GTK originally due
+ to a bug in Java that was subsequently fixed.  This workaround has been
+ removed in GTK 2.19.1 which is now in Lucid.
+ 
+ The attached debdiff contains the simple removal of the workaround from
+ the GTK upstream bug commit.
+ 
+ TEST CASE:
+ - install openjdk-6-jdk
+ - verify it is selected with 'java -version'
+ - install netbeans
+ - start firefox
+ - start netbeans
+ - in netbeans: using any input field or editor window (create any new project and any new file in it) copy with Ctrl-C any text to clipboard
+ - switch to Firefox, click on any bookmark in bookmark tab tree (Left Bookmarks Sidebar)
+ - Firefox crashes
+ 
+ In fact, instead of netbeans any java swing application can be used.
+

  Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
  
  When I right click on a bookmark in the bar above the tabs, or in the
  Bookmarks menu, firefox crashes sporadically.
