      Description

        When invoking javaws from the command line with no arguments you get back a list of valid arguments and usage information. On Mac OS X this information has a blank line inserted between each line of the output, making it harder to read.

        To reproduce:

        1. Install any build of 7u4 or later.
        2. Launch Terminal.app
        3. Enter "/Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/javaws" and hit return

        ==> Output:
        Java Web Start:

        Usage: javaws [run-options] <jnlp-file>

               javaws [control-options]

        etc.

        ---> You should see
        Java Web Start:
        Usage: javaws [run-options] <jnlp-file>
               javaws [control-options]

        where run-options include:
          -verbose display additional output
