Fatal error when running java applet (Fatal error several java virtual machines running in same process)

When opening a java applet in IE, I get the following error:

Fatal error several java virtual machines running in same process

I've tried adding -Xmx500M and -Xmx768M to the java applet parameter with no success.  The machine has 1 GB of physical RAM.

I have already tried this Work Around...

Try setting virtual memory as System managed:
Windows XP users -
Start ---> ControlPanel --->System --->advanced ----> Performance(setting) ----> Advanced ----> virtualmemory(change) ---> Click system managed size ---> set then OK, restart your computer

...and with no success.

Is there a specific version of JRE6 that I should try?
According to the second bugreport it should be fixed in  JRE6 update 10 (build 08). But I'm not sure it will solve your problem.

Where can I download that, I see only update 3 and 4 on any of the Java download pages?
Hmmm... seems it's only available as an early access version: https://jdk6.dev.java.net/6uNea.html
