Java(TM) Update is getting on my nerves

Since recently whenever I send my WinXP box into hibernation and then start it again, there is an error message displayed from "Java(TM) Update" saying something like "The Java update cannot be continued with the current system settings for the internet connection. Please check in windows system control under internet settings -> connections if the settings and proxy information is correct." (my translation from German). I do not remember this happening before I installed Mustang build 63.

Is this supposed to be a new feature to make the user's life easier? It is just getting on my nerves to see this message every morning.

This is a bug that was introduced in mustang and has been
fixed in build 72.

Just for the record: This seems to be fixed in Mustang b65. And another nice think I noticed: The installer looks really nice. Great work!

This morning when my box woke up from hibernation it greeted me with a dialog saying "The current Java virtual machine is already installed". Very informative indeed!

If we want Java to get more successful on the client, at least it should not alienate the average user. Imagine every other application (there must be more than 50 on my computer ) would do the same. And I am a Java developer who knows where the dialog comes from. Average Joe has no idea what this is all about, and all he will ever know about Java is that "it is the only that keeps throwing meaningless dialogs into my face".

I'm not sure you want to disable this automatic check. Without it I think your java might break soon enouhg.

This is exactly why I don't install java on other computers anymore.

How about just disabling the auto-update-check in the java-properties?
Sure, you don't get notified on an update, but as a Java developer I suppose you'll get the hint anyways...
