smpatch no longer works after update from SUC proxy!

I ran smpatch update against our local SUC proxy. It said some patches needed a reboot so I did "init 6" after it finished and the system shutdown, installing some patches, and then booted again...

Now the system as such seems to work fine but "smpatch analyze" fails with this weird error:

Exception java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: requested -4 bytes for size_t in /BUILD_AREA/jdk1.5.0_21/hotspot/src/os/solaris/vm/os_solaris.cpp. Out of swap space?

And just running "java" fails with the same error message.

However running "java -client" works!

Any ideas how to fix this?!?

I tried to install the latest recommended patch cluster but that did not help. )-:

Alternatively is there a way to make smpatch use "java -client" so that it works?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best regards,
