Apparently sometimes the Webstart / Applet JAR file cache gets corrupt and even worse the JRE seems to be unable to detect that its cache is no longer valid. To get the JRE up running again, the users actually has to delete the cache themselves.

The reference that you use seems to be based on JRE 1.3 and 1.4 period... (quite old info.)

There has been quite some work done to the caching mechanism in 5 and 6(not just 6u10). Please submit a bug if you have a specific issues that you see.
