Globe Animation Java samples fail to run on certain Linux operating systems. This has been seen after updating GNOME.
The crash is occurring because of a symbol conflict between an ArcGIS library and the Linux libz.so library.
The planned fix for this problem involves a tighter way of linking the ArcGIS libzn.so library. This prevents ArcGIS internal calls from being intercepted by the Linux operating system.
This fix is planned to be included in a 9.3.1 service pack.
