R search applet initialization

R 1.5.1 is due to come out ... and I've just noticed that the R help.start
page search applet doesn't work on my Mandrake 8.2 system even though I've
upgraded mozilla to version 1.0 and I have a perfectly working java (all
right, I'm using 1.4.0 now, but with mozilla 0.98 and java 1.3.1 it still
didn't work). I had thought the problem due to a too-old mozilla version,
but it doesn't seem to be that now.

Error messages throughout changes in versions of mozilla and java are 
consistent: the java applet doesn't get initialized.

Could this be a problem with default mandrake file permissions ?
Is it possible to download just the apple source code and a description of 
how it is supposed to work from somewhere on CRAN ?
How could I go about debugging this ?
