I agree that ptolemy.actor.gui.BrowserLauncher is somewhat sketchy.
However, it works fine for me under Ptolemy and fails under Kepler.
So, I suspect some other issue that might be affecting other facilities.
I'll see if I can replicate this later.

The most elegant solution would be to require Java 1.6, but I'm not
ready for that.
My concern with going with a different browser launcher is that it might
making a bunch of changes to the Ptolemy tree or else having Kepler
specific versions of class files.

It might be easier to address the bug in Kepler and stick with BrowserLauncher
until Java 1.6 is required, which would probably be the next major release.

Just my $0.02.
