Remember the old stuttering problem in earlier versions of JDK5.0? The one where the mouse pointer started jerking and sound crackled etc etc.? It was caused by high priority VM threads being mapped to realtime priority threads on Windows NT/XP systems.
Well, unfortunately it's back in JDK6.0 and the workaround flags to map the JVM thread priorities have been removed.
Does anyone know what the new flags are to remap thread priorities? And would any kind soul from the JVM teams at Sun reading this care to paddle the ass of the developer who didn't commit the fix to the 6.0 development stream when he did the 5.0 fix?
