I assume you're using our XML-RPC client.  Some previous releases of
the client referenced code from the com.sun.* packages, which I
believe are inaccessible to applets w/out a policy file (you'd have to
search the mailing list archives for exact details).  I seem to recall
this being for the base64 library.  What version of the client are you

Also, have you given the latest from CVS a try?
