Description

After installing recent versions of the standard JRE from Oracle, running a test suite constantly pops up warning dialogs:

This makes it infeasible to run the regression suite, since you would have to stand by the machine for hours, clicking the "No" button hundreds of times. Problem happens on both IE8 and FF, and presumably other browsers.

IIRC Mark said that it works with IBM's JRE but that's not a good solution because that JRE is not easily available outside of IBM (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10697656/how-to-get-ibm-java-7-for-windows and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10714588/ibm-sdk-7-for-non-ibm-windows-machines).

Note that Mark checked in a fix/procedure to solve this problem with the 7u40 JVM as part of #17442. However it no longer works with the newest 7u45 JVM.

My semi-workaround is to use the old 7u25 version of the JVM from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase7-521261.html. It pops up upgrade warnings every few hours though.

We have moved dojo core to Intern, and the plan is to focus on Intern rather than maintaining DOH. We would accept pull requests for this issue if someone wants to fix it.
