Several people have told me incredibly quickly that I need Sun patch 103792-18
or later on 2.5.1, or 105362-18 or later on 2.6. A couple of people wondered
if 2.5.1 ran properly on the Ultra 5 - yes it does. I've grabbed the absolute
latest 103792-20 and installed that. I rebooted the machine and the message
goes away.

Brilliant list! Thanks a lot everyone.
