Jigsaw will never work under JDK 1.0.2 for the Mac.  Sun released it with
serious crashing bugs in the socket classes, and in the 7 or 8 months since
its release, hasn't bothered to fix them.

I wonder if anyone has gotten Jigsaw to work with Apple's MacOS Runtime for
Java, currently at version 1.0b1.  I believe this is a more stable and
mature version of the VM than the so-called JDK "1.0.2" for Mac.
