Webstart ignoring minor J2SE version numbers

P: n/a
I'm trying to build my first WeStart aware application. I've JARed it
and assembled my HTML and JNLP files, but am having a lot of trouble
with the <j2se> tag.

I would like my users to use Java 1.4.2 or later. (I have 1.4.2-b28
myself). However, when I use the tag <j2se version="1.4.2+"/>, web
start replys that a JVM of this version is not installed, and that it
cannot find an appropriate JVM to download either. Changing that to
"1.4.2" - the example given in the documentation - creates the same
error. However, "1.4+" download and runs the application.

My app relys on some bug fixes from versions post 1.4.0, and I'd like
my users upgrade to the appropriate JVM. Is there a way to get this
