I just created a bug report (internal review ID of 1460085) that includes a proposed fix based on JDK6u12 source. I have already EMailed a PDF of a signed Sun Contributor Agreement just in case this is needed or will expedite things. This bug also exists in the latest openjdk7 source drop and does not exist in JDK5.

3-1/2 months ago I created a less specific bug report (internal review ID of 1380005) that so far is unreviewed. This older bug can now be closed. The newer report is much more specific and includes a proposed (and trivial) fix.

For anyone deploying Java Web Start across a WAN, this fix will make a big difference. I hope this fix can be included in 6u13 or 6u14 (which is why I am posting here).

This problem will be fixed for 6u14 build 03 (should be available from java.net in couple weeks). It does was fixed as part of other bug fix and does not have dedicated bug id.
