and even WPS ends up useless.

Yoda, I told you many times, please DO NOT touch the priority fields - by doing that you just create more work for me to change them.

Regarding the subject. Yes, I can confirm that. May be the new SEH too.

I change those fields, when it makes sense.
The Java applet in question here is used by every Danish citizen on everyday basis.
It is used for login to every gov site in Denmark, and to every Bank in Denmark.

Taking this into mind, together with the fact, that it right now takes the whole
OS down if you try this applet, it is definitely a BLOCKER in my mind - how on earth
you can think of a bug that takes the OS down to only have medium severity, goes beyond
my mind.

The applet does btw work fine with SM and Java 1.42 even though they claim Java 5
is required.

Your mistake is that the severity/priority fields are not intended to express your feelings about the particular bug, they are intended to help us organize our work.
